Basler Papiermühle
The Basel Paper Mill is located in a house in which paper has been produced for more than 500 years. The mill can be found in the idyllic mill district of St. Alban. In 2011 the museum was renovated and the permanent exhibition completely rearranged. Now the focus is on a ‘hands-on' approach. The collections at the Basel Paper mill comprise the technical and cultural development of paper, writing and printing that had its beginning in the mid 15th century with the Council of Basel.

In addition to the original and authentic atmosphere of the old building, another highlight is provided by the open workshops. Skilled craftsmen produce client's orders and make their own productions with historical machines, thus guaranteeing the survival of the immaterial cultural heritage of paper and book production. Visitors are invited to try printing or producing coloured paper.
