Electrical Walks Basel

Sound artist Christina Kubisch has put together a sound walk for the HeK, through which one can experience the surroundings of the Dreispitz-Areal in a completely new way. Equipped with special headphones, you can hear electromagnetic fields – in other words, electricity! The map leads you to 10 special sound locations on the Dreispitz area. 

The headphones (max. 4 pieces) and a guide including a map can be borrowed at the ticket office during opening hours against deposit of an official identity card. 

Age: from 7 years
Costs: free 
Duration: approx. 1 hour, depending on route and speed
