125 years of Ramstein Optik

More than a century of opticians: We celebrate 125 years of Ramstein Optik!

In 1899, Carl Ramstein was not one of the 200 Basel residents who left the city for overseas. On the contrary, together with Wilhelm Schultheiss, he founded his Ramstein & Schultheiss Optical Institute in Greifengasse in Kleinbasel. And so this year we are celebrating the 125th anniversary of the company.

We have developed numerous unique ideas for this special occasion. First up, we're unveiling our new poster campaign this week. Instead of new portraits, we're taking a look back at more than three decades of Ramstein poster design - and you can rediscover 31 iconic, award-winning and unique posters throughout the year.

Surprises from Ramstein

Throughout the year, products specially made for Ramstein will be available in our shop in Sattelgasse. It all starts with beautiful bags made from recycled cotton, printed by Arni Siebdruck in Basel;
