There’s a full program of events each day and there are also plenty of cultural activities taking place all over Basel (like Rhy Art for example) and the surrounding area.

People come from all over to see and to be seen. In fact if you like both art and “people watching” you will probably be in heaven! People turn up in wacky outfits, hats, shoes and crazy accessories – it’s all part of the scene. As well as paintings there are a number of art installations and sculptures too.
