Audio guide to Basle's Saint-Paul Church

St. Paul's Church in Basel is one of the most important churches built in Switzerland around 1900. Would you like to know more about this church? The audio guide (in German) offers you information in 15 parts on the history of the building, the architecture, the sculptures, stained glass windows and more. You don't need any prior knowledge to discover the church with it. Everything is explained.

The whole tour lasts three quarters of an hour. If you don't have that much time, you can use the links to the individual parts to put together your own individual tour. If you are not currently in the church but would like to take a virtual tour, you can find photos of the individual parts in the "Image gallery" section. As the photos are in high resolution, some of them will appear with a slight delay. Please be patient! And if you would prefer to read rather than listen to the tour, you will find the written version of the audio guide at the end.

We wish you a pleasant viewing experience, interesting insights and lots of fun on your tour.

As of now, the guide is available on German only.
