The longest route is pretty challenging. Luckily, this course leading through Kleinbasel and out towards Riehen is incredibly rich in variety.
Best time of year
Shortly after setting off from Rheinweg, the route takes you through the Lange Erlen Animal Park before following the course of the Wiese until Fondation Beyeler comes into view. You’ll need plenty of stamina on the way back. Back alongside the Rhine, the impressive turbine hall at the Birsfelden power plant soon appears. At Museum Tinguely, the Schwarzwaldbrücke bridge then takes you to the Grossbasel bank of the river, where you pass the Basler Papiermühle (Basel Paper Mill) on the way to the Wettsteinbrücke bridge. After crossing the Rhine again here, there’s a quick detour to the old Warteck brewery before you reach the “finish line” in the heart of Kleinbasel.
