Castles on the Upper Rhine

Basel Tourism is supporting the “Châteaux rhénans – Burgen am Oberrhein” project with the aim of popularizing castles across borders, giving them added value and promoting them.

With a total of nearly 5 million euros in funding, the project will receive 2.9 million euros in co-financing from the European Union via the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of the Interreg Oberrhein programme.
