On a sunny day there are lots of locals out lazing in the sun. We watched bocci ball. It is an easy stroll with some shady parts.

Rheinufer Basel the sides of the river come to life in the sunshine it’s a wonderful place to stroll and people watch as the locals head to the waters edge to catch up with friends.

For the last 50 years I have always enjoyed spending time on the Rhine board in Basel the town where I was born and which I like more and more the older I get, in the future I am going to literally drool over it.

The day I was here was sunny and almost balmy. The locals love to swim/float down the river and although I haven't tried it, it does look good fun. The river travels very fast though!

Espacially during summer great place to spend the evening - going for a swim in the river or visiting one of the many bars and restaurants.

Whenever you send your time in bale, you should take a walk at the riverside. It's amazing to see the sunset or something over the river, you can also go swimming there in summer or book a boattour to see the city. I really enjoy...More

Try swimming in the Rhine in summer. Waterproof bags (called "Wickelfisch") with Basel designs can be bought along the riverwalk. These are for carrying a towel and other essentials and can be used as a float. You need to be a confident swimmer to get...More
