The Basel Pfalz offers fantastic views across the old town and far beyond into the Border Triangle, the point where three countries meet.

The word «Pfalz» is derived from «palatium» (palace). The terrace located high above the Rhine behind the Cathedral (Münster) is known as the Pfalz because the bishop’s residence was once located in the immediate vicinity. Steps lead down from the Pfalz to the jetty of the Münsterfähre (Cathedral Ferry). On the other hand, the quiet cloister of the cathedral may be accessed through a narrow gap. Also to be seen are the many ornate gravestones of members of prominent Basel families from the 16th to the 19th centuries.
