Lights out for an hour for Earth Hour 2022

At 8:30 p.m. on March 26, 2022, the lights went out in Basel for an hour. At least for famous sights like Basel Cathedral and the city gates, but also on the central Rhine bridges. In Aarau, the sights of Obertorturm, Stadtmuseum and Stadtkirche as well as the Eniwa and Holzmarkt power plant will remain in the dark at the same time.

The two cities thus join the global environmental campaign “Earth Hour”. Darkness is meant to indicate a waste of resources and to make people think. This campaign was launched by the World Wide Fund for Nature in Australia in 2007.
