This is a very neat spot showing the boundary of Switzerland, France and Germany. The problem is that it is difficult to get to and it isn't well marked. You either walk along a small path or through the recycling area. Also, it isn't much...More

No hop on hop off in Basil so we did the 2hr tour booked from the Information centre. The bus stopped here for 10 minutes enough time to take a few photos.

A city of many faces and changing moods from idyllic residential neighbourhoods to picturesque alleys in the old town, and to modern and cool urban dwellings, you’ll find all these and much more in its quarters. Let yourself be inspired.

We were there in June this year. There is indeed a footpath which is right next to the boats. However, I’d just like to add that it’s not a very pleasant walk either way. Hope this helps :)
