The Stadtcasino Basel dates to 1824, when it first opened, but its current facilities come from later: the 1876 Musiksaal, the Hans Huber Hall from 1905 and the Casino completed in 1939. In 2012 the famous archistars duo Herzog & de Meuron were commissioned to restore and extend the two pieces in the same neo-Baroque architectural tradition of the 19th-century original designed by Johann Jakob Stehlin. The new Musiksaal, home to the Basel Symphony Orchestra and a Swiss landmark, reopened in 2020 but it was closed due to the Covid pandemic immediately after.
