We saw dozens of fountains as we toured around Basel. This one is bigger than most. Many are tiny and tucked away in the side of buildings.

If you are in Basel - mind watching all the different kind of fountains you find. This example is a beautiful fountain on an inconspicuous square.

Fischmarktbrunnen stands in a part of the old town in Basel and this old town is worth a visit, Take your time stroll along the narrow lanes and find tiny shops and cosy little Bars or Restaurants
