Riviera

A Mediterranean feeling in Switzerland? Of course! 

Simply pack your clothes in a Wickelfisch swim bag and go for a dip. Sightseeing a different way: you can admire the sights around you while floating down the river. Basel’s cathedral to your left, the Mittlere Brücke bridge in front and above you, past the traditional ferries and the charming houses of the Old Town.

Back on shore, a drink at one of the outdoor bars will round off the experience. Hungry? Whether you prefer fish nuggets on the riverbank, vegetarian cuisine in a former brewery or a new twist on traditional dishes in one of Kleinbasel’s trendy establishments – enjoy dinner with your friends where the locals go to make it a perfect summer’s day.
