As we walked along the streets from the restaurant back to the train stop where we would board the train bound for our stop near the Hilton, we stopped at a window where this creation with the name JW Janvier above it. From what I understand, JW Janvier was responsible for building a steam-powered carousel.

Beautiful steeple, Basel, Switzerland

Very interesting tree canopy, Basel, Switzerland.

This fascinating mechanism, a creation of Jean Tinguely, is just one waterworks sculpture in this particular pool located in the Old Town section of Basel. The sculptures are "animated" by water pipes in constant motion. (There is another pool with lots of other "animated" sculptures on the Roche campus.)
