Best sunset view in Basel.

Photography Tips

Be there at least 20-30 minutes before sunset and stay until almost dark. Light changes dramatically and city lights switch off shortly before darkness. Also cathedral is lightened up only shortly before complete darkness.
Best views are on the side of the old town, but light is very beautiful on the other side of the bridge too.

Great photo, thank you! Did you take this picture from the bridge? Or from the other side of the river with view towards the cathedral?

Thank you. Depends which picture you ask about because I see that someone added pictures from other places. Two sunset photos are taken from Wettsteinbruecke.
