My Basel – Nine expeditions through Basel for women

Forget Heinrich, Paracelsus, Wettstein, Platter... This city guide shows you another side of Basel: the Basel of empresses, nuns, generous patrons, successful businesswomen, female scientists and workers, master craftswomen, landladies, artists and architects and many other women who have shaped and changed the city on the bend in the Rhine.

In nine expeditions through Basel, the author shows you what women in Basel have achieved in history, politics, education and science, work and business, and in literature, art and architecture.

Experience the city on the bend in the Rhine from a woman's perspective and immerse yourself in the worlds of Anna of Habsburg and Margaretha Merian, Iris von Roten, Gertrud Spiess, Emilie Louise Frey, Silvia Arber, Anita Treml, Adelheid Duvanel and Cécile Ines Loos, Trudl Bruckner, Bettina Eichin, Tanja Klein and Andrea Ott...

Discover with your friends or family places to hang out, enjoy and let your soul dangle - all selected with a woman-oriented view.

In addition, well-known Basel women will reveal their favorite places to stay, visit, shop and feast in Basel.
