Rhine Trail Basel – Kaiseraugst

Hike the Rhine Trail and follow the river from Basel to Kaiseraugst along a former embankment fishing track. There are information boards along the way with cultural, historical and ecological facts about the River Rhine and the surrounding area.

The trail runs through picturesque forests, the industrial Rhine ports and Basel's Old Town. On the way you will encounter various buildings and other structures that tell the story of the Rhine, such as fishing huts, landing jetties for the fleet of the Rhine cruise company Basler Personenschifffahrt, the clubhouses of rowing and boating clubs, the drinking water processing plant of Hardwasser AG, cranes and warehouses used by companies operating in the Swiss Rhine ports, the two hydroelectric power stations Augst-Wyhlen and Birsfelden and, of course, the Rhine ferries.
