  • Original fountain as is often the case in a nation where the classic approaches to modern. Thoroughly enjoyable watch

  • I can't find the grace to this species of pond in which move machines of iron without much grace truth

  • Its a set of fountains made in a form of set of art works. Each art work is a mechanical art work with water fountain attached to it so when each artwork moves the fountain water makes a rythmic sound. And all rythmic sounds collectively creates a soothing music.
  • There's an almost therapeutic calm in listening to the machines conduct their symphony of splashes. Visiting here in the early evening after the sun has left allows you to experience whacky machine silhouettes with the fountain lit up by lights protruding from the water. It's an ideal time given you are likely to be able to be alone with your thoughts and only the odd passerby.
  • It's a good place to take a break!
  • Basel's English Dentist, Dr Garry Bonsall, dental surgeon, loves Tinguely Fountains, Basel
  • It's a cool set of kinetic fountains. It's cool to watch them move by themselves and you can take some nice photos of them.

Where to stay in Basel

Business-oriented Basel offers an overwhelming amount of mid-range hotels catering to its business clientele. The city fills up during conferences and events, so be sure to plan accordingly. There are a number of guesthouses and bed and breakfasts too, but they tend to be pretty pricey. You'll find a handful of budget-friendly hostels just south of the city core. Keep in mind that as you move toward the outskirts of town for affordable accommodation, proximity to the train stations will be key. The good news is that a number of the hotels include public transport passes with the cost of a room.
