The Zionist Congresses were held in Basel from 1897 (the first congress) until 1899 (third congress), and many of the congresses after that were also held there. Where in Basel, exactly, was the "congress building" where the congresses took place?

We have a picture of the congress building:

What is the exact address of the "congress building" today? Can one still visit it and go inside?

According to Wikipedia it was held at the Stadtcasino. Part of it (the closest building in the photograph) has been torn down and replaced. I don't know which part of the building the congress was in, but the room pictures in Wikipedia looks like the existing Musiksaal, so you might be able to visit it. – Lennart Regebro Jan 23 '14 at 18:41

According to wikipedia "The Congress took place in the concert hall of the Municipal Casino"
