Historical Atlas of Basel

The city, prince-bishopric and canton of Basel have always had numerous German-French-Swiss border lines and crossings. Bordered by the Jura, the Black Forest and the Vosges Mountains, this area views the Burgundian Gateway and the Upper and High Rhine.

The German-language “Historischer Atlas der Region Basel” outlines the history of Basel in 64 maps with accompanying texts. The journey starts in modern times and goes back to antiquity. Related topics such as denominational or language boundaries are also covered.
