Designed by Karl Moser the Antoniuskirche in Basel was built between 1925 and 1927 as the first pure concrete church in Switzerland. Interestingly the consecration was delayed until 1931: rumour has it this was due to its extremely modern look, while the official reason were the not yet paid building costs.
While the church has a height of 22 meters, the bell tower is 62m high !
