  • Awesome little fountain with ten dancing mechanical sculptures. There was one that was frozen and we could of stayed there for hours watching them. Nice area and so much to see. Kids loves trying to figure them out. One was iced over which was interesting to watch.
  • Quirky fountain in the heart of the city. We started our Basel walking tour from this fountain and it was interesting to watch. This artistic fountain is made of metals which are made to look like they are playing with each other. It was a sunny day and the show surprised us with a little rainbow.
