I found the air inside the Markthalle too heavy on a hot summer’s day, but apart from that, this place offers a wide variety of quick bites. Great aroma lingers in the air.

I had read reviews of the Markhalle and had it on our to do list in Basel. For anyone who is not familiar with a markthalle, it can be described as a sort of food court with mostly privately owned food stalls. The Alte Markthalle...More

Stalls selling fresh dishes from all over the world. Go have a starter from Jamaica, main course from Pakistan and pudding from Thailand or starter from Greece, main from Japan and pudding from Spain. Lively atmosphere and very family friendly.

I love to go there for lunch, and from time to time for dinner. There is an amazing choice of world food, plenty of space to seat and a great international atmosphere

We popped in one Sunday afternoon and we were really surprised by the choice of food available. There seemed to be stalls selling foods from every corner of the globe! There was a real family vibe to the place, definitely child friendly...and dog friendly too....More
