Arrival by ship

Arriving by ship is a special experience: on a river cruise you can reach the city directly via the Rhine. The three landing stages are convenient departure points for discovering Basel. 

The cabin ships carry around 100,000 guests to Basel each year. There are three landing stages in the St. Johann and Klybeck districts as well as directly at the border triangle. Information panels with hints on activities in Basel and a detailed route description for transfers to the city centre are located at the passenger terminals.
