Karl Barths Wohnorte am St. Alban-Ring (residencies)

Karl Barth lived in this street from 1935 to 1946. First, he moved into the house on the corner with Sonnenweg: St. Alban Ring 186. Later he moved to St. Alban Ring 178, next door to his son-in-law and friend, Max Zellweger, who lived with his Family in 176. A small coincidence: Karl Barth delighted in the knowledge that John Calvin, the Protestant Reformer, also lived in the St. Alban area exactly 400 years before he moved there.


Address: St. Alban Ring 186 and 178, CH-4052 Basel
