Hotel au Violon Basel Switzerland

Im Lohnhof 4 CH 4051 Basel Switzerland


Located on a historic site, the Lohnhof is laden with a rich history. The first church, of which only the crypt has survived, was built on the Lohnhof site in the Romanic epoch around 1060/1070. Its bishop, Burkard von Fenis, had the church fortified with ramparts to protect it against attacks and sieges. Vestiges of the original site were discovered during the archaeological diggings carried out in connection with its restoration. In 1133/35, the chapter of Augustinian canons established a monastery with a cloister. The monastery was severely damaged by an earthquake in 1356 and restored soon afterwards. It was rebuilt in 1492 as a late-gothic church, as it stands today

Hotel au Violon Basel Switzerland - Accommodation

 You will be seduced by the originality of a former prison converted with inspiration and a profound sense of harmony into a charming hotel on two floors that provides twenty rooms, each fitted with its own shower and toilet facilities. Choosing one of the fourteen rooms looking on to the courtyard, feel free to rediscover the cellular spirit of former prison life.

Or perhaps you would prefer to stay in the reconverted police station and overlook the old town. The „Au Violon“ offers unmatched accommodation: Located conveniently in the heart of historic Basel, and with our emphasis on a warm and welcoming staff, that takes pride in hosting you in a unique setting, we provide exceptional value for money.
