Basel Town Hall
After a stop at the Basel Minster and a look at the grand Rhine, we spent the day at the Kunstmuseum where we have a learned appreciation for Swiss art. Its medieval and renaissance art is lively and forceful. They have rooms devoted to Holbein, Cranach, Renoir, Cezanne and Monet to name a few.
This evening we decided to have fondue, because...well, we're in Switzerland. What we got was pot full of enough cheese to feed an army. Just melted cheese. No salad. No vegetables. Nothing but bread. All of that for $68. Yes, Switzerland is pricey. So, that is it for fondue and us. (Unless I find a chocolate fondue on the desert list)
We have purchased a Swiss Travel Pass which allows us to take the train anywhere in Switzerland for the next 8 days. It also grants free admission to museums and inner city transportation i.e. trams, gondolas, ferries. Tomorrow we will use it when we travel to Lucern. Pictures galore of art at flickr.
