This monument marks the point where Switzerland, Germany and France meet. To get there you have to walk through an industrial area and then by the river, so perhaps not the most accessible place, but interesting when you get there. We combined it with then...More

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.

This is one of the few places in the world that is a confluence of 3 countries. You are standing at a point where Switzerland, Germany, and France meet at the Rhine River. Nice photo op.

Fascinating landmark in Basel, at the meeting point of three great countries: Germany, France and Switzerland. The monument is rather quiet, not much visitors as I expected. It is located close to the old city but rather far from the train station

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 :)
