Is what it is!

This is great to say you've been in three countires almost at once! Not a lot other than looking out into the Rhine and stanmding beside a point! A must do nonetheless!

The monument has the 3 flags on its side but there’s little to actually do when you get there (in February at least) and little to read. For me walking across the borders was the enjoyable and novelty part, especially walking over the bridge (200 metres to the north) from France into Germany, and then across ZollStrasse from Germany into...

Who likes gatherer attractions, so this is one of them. In a united Europe, the border triangle of three states CH / D / F which is located in the middle of the river Rhine, but of course you can find this place on the Swiss bank of the river, not far from the border with Germany. France is on... More

You take a tram going north from the city and then walk for 10 minutes or so alongside the industrial port area to reach this point. There is a modest modern sculpture to mark the point. It is not particularly spectacular when you get there but I thought it was worth a visit to get a feel for being on... More

I do believe Basel haven't jumped on this opportunity as much as they should. Hidden away in an industrial estate (as per the reviews said), this monument, though really lovely to look at...is ever so slightly underwhelming. It's about a 40 minute walk from Marktplatz and really is hidden away amongst some very large factories. Although I do believe there... More

Dreilaendereck is a strange place hidden in the industrial part of Basel. After a 10 min walk from the nearest tram station, you find an obelisk pointing in three directions with German and French borders separated by just a narrow river. There is a restaurant nearby with an observation deck (one floor) from where you can enjoy the view of... More

If you want to be in three different countries in less than 30 seconds, then this is one of the tripoint places to visit. It may be tough to get to without a car but thankfully we had a vehicle. It's a bit difficult to find but we managed. When we arrived early morning, there was no one there. The... More

Here the border of France, German and Switzerland meet. There is a special display that sits at the point where the countries meet. This means you can run from Switzerland, through France & Germany and back in 10 seconds. Where else can you do that with no border guards? Then there are all the boats and the river to see.

This place was not easy to get to. There is not much around in the area, it is very industrial, but my partner and I decided to walk all the way from Basel so when we finally found it, it was very satisfying. Once you do finally make it, you are able to make it to all three countries with... More
