I love this library that is in the city of Basel. It is the largest and most asthetic of the GGG (geh geh geh) public libraries we have here.
It sits in a busy part of the city, but it is tucked away in this courtyard. IT is a quiet and peaceful place (and right next to on of my favorite restaurants - 1777 Basel).
Unfortunately, this branch only has German books. A few of the GGG libaries have English books, but not many.
But this one is the prettiest. It holds 1000s of books, and it is something to see.
