Today this fine square is used for all kinds of events and serves as a living open space for people to meet.
With its red sandstone walls, multicoloured roof tiles and twin towers, the Cathedral is a dominant feature of the city. The crypt, the choir, the tomb of Erasmus of Rotterdam, the Galluspforte and the two cloisters are a testimony to the eventful history of its construction over a period of several centuries.

The word "Pfalz" is derived from "palatium" = palace. The terrace high above the Rhine behind the Cathedral is called the Pfalz because the residence of the Bishop of Basel was in the immediate vicinity.
The Basler Pfalz offers a magnificent view over the Old Town and far out into the Three-Countries Corner.
