What does «Mus» have to do with the Heinrichsglocke of the Basel cathedral? How many towers did the Basel Cathedral have before the earthquake of 1356? How did St. Martin get to feel at the cathedral tower that Basel, which had become Protestant, did not think much of saints? Who «sold off» part of the cathedral treasure in 1833? Where can one still learn today what Christian mercy is all about?

These are some of the more than 90 questions that the retired grammar school teacher Günther Misenta from Denzlingen near Freiburg has compiled on the cathedral. With his illustrated quiz, the varied questions and informative answers, you can test and expand your knowledge of this unique building in a playful and entertaining way. The net proceeds from the sale will go to the church interior education department at Basel Cathedral.
