First to Review

While I'm sure Petersplatz is a perfectly good platz in-and-of its platz-y self, this review is actually for the flea-market that takes place in this square, at the Universitat Basel, on Saturdays during Spring and Fall. It's the place to be if you're looking to buy or sell anything and everything. It's also really fun to just look around, browsing not just the merchandise, but the people. There is no better people-watching in Basel, perhaps second only to the banks of the river. I definitely spent a good couple hours here on a lazy, Swiss Sunday afternoon!

If you're looking to immerse yourself into the culture of Basel, and maybe find a cool vintage camera or dress, meet me at Petersplatz on the first Spring Saturday. I'll help you look! ;-p
