Basle is "the" Art City in Switzerland. The numerous museums of classical and contemporary art attract hundreds of thousands of visitors. It is also where the "Art" is staged every year, the biggest art fair in the world. Culture in general and the fine arts in particular have a long tradition at the Rhine bend. It is supported here equally by the public and by politics. So it's no wonder that a project was possible in Basle which would have had no chance anywhere else: The City Sky. The Christophe-Merian Trust, the Basle City Canton and a lottery fund support this art and culture project of the initiator and organizer Klaus Littmann.
