We saw dozens of fountains as we toured around Basel. This one is bigger than most. Many are tiny and tucked away in the side of buildings.

Fischmarktbrunnen stands in a part of the old town in Basel and this old town is worth a visit, Take your time stroll along the narrow lanes and find tiny shops and cosy little Bars or Restaurants
