Long Description:
EN: The reformed church of Birsfelden was built in 1866 after plans of Paul Reber in the Neo-Gothic style. Some of the building material were relics of the late Gothic Elisabeth chapel in Basel.

In 1960 the church was completely refurbished. The whole interior and much of the exterior was changed, only the base structure of the building was taken over.

Another major renovation and extension was done in 2003.
