Thank you Thor.
I looked for the earthquake risk in Switzerland ( http://www.bebende.ch/download/mitigation_program.pdf ) and it is said that "An earthquake of magnitude 5 on the Richter scale is
expected in Switzerland on average once every 10 years, and a magnitude 6
earthquake once every 100 years. The strong earthquake that devastated Basel in
1356 had an estimated magnitude of 6.5"

Incredible Peter. The age, the design the fancy work on the side...everything and what a gorgeous steeple in the background.

Thank you Heather.
When I saw this photo on my PC, I realized that I should have taken a close-up of that golden steeple too, Well, next time when we visit Basel!
