For the 16th time, the Claraspital presents a Christmas park open to the public. In the magnificent park with its old trees, a large installation that changes every year invites visitors to escape the hustle and bustle, to absorb and enjoy the pre-Christmas atmosphere.
Although we very rarely experience a white Christmas in Basel, it is what many would wish for these days: a walk through the quiet nature, a steaming drink in hand, a good book, a nice movie - while it is snowing outside. Getting quiet, celebrating together, laughing and telling stories.
Snow reduces the world to contrasts. Yet snow is amazingly diverse. This year, designer Stephan Primus has transformed the park of the Claraspital into a winter landscape with snow crystal stelae and bivouacs. The artistic interpretation is meant to inspire reflection on our relationship to this season and to nature: What is winter to me? What is the meaning of snow? How wild or tamed should or may a landscape be?
In many families it is a tradition to read the Christmas story or a Christmas story on Christmas Eve. In the bivouacs, visitors can take a seat and listen to a Christmas story. There are shorter and longer ones, touching, special and also one from the war.
