A delightful walk amongst the woods and wetlands with many pools containing a wide variety of fish, birds, frogs etc and plant life too with fields of natural wild flowers growing. Various options allow you to make it longish walk or cut it shorter by taking the many paths that cross the entire reserve. Very pleasant.

I'd been staying in Basel several weeks before I actually paid to go through this museum. It's terrific with hands on activities for all. You can get close up to all sorts of printing tools and the historic displays are excellent. I highly recommend going, especially is you are at all interested in paper arts or book making or printing.

If you're into modern design, this is the place to go. The buildings themselves are innovative architectural designs, not to be seen elsewhere. And of course, if you really want to create your own chair(s), one can spend hours trying out the various display models; examining the different designs and even watching your own piece be partically assembled on site.

Escape Room Saint-Louis. Lambda Escape is an escape game designed for groups of 2 to 6 people. You get 60 minutes to solve puzzles and mysteries in a room. The goal is simple, yet challenging: get out in time ! Or... you could be trapped inside forever !
I have seen quite a number of escape rooms now, and this one is defenetly one of the top ones. Without spoilers: Innovative puzzels and a nice atmosphere, all in all well worth a visit!

The four Rhine Ferries cross the Rhein on four different places Contact: St. Alban Fähre: 0041 79 659 63 66 Münster-Fähre: 0041 77 400 65 41 Klingental-Fähre: 0041 79 659 63 67 St.Johan-Fähre: 0041 79 659 63 68
The Rhine current was so strong so if this little ferry didn’t have its pulley rope we would have been down the river in seconds. It was fun and a must do in Basel!

The Vitra campus is a must-see for anyone who loves furniture design, interior design, architecture, really anyone connected with design in any way. The VitraHaus is really a furniture showroom, but an amazing experience & a very special piece of architecture. I suggest watching the YouTube videos about this building before visiting. Entrance to VitraHaus is free, but it is definitely suggested to visit the Design Museum & the new SchausDepot & to take the architectural tours of the campus.

The Three Countries Bridge (Dreilanderbrucke, La passerelle des Trois Pays) is an arch bridge which crosses the Rhine between the commune of Huningue (France) and Weil am Rhein (Germany). It is the world's longest single-span bridge dedicated exclusively to carrying pedestrians and cyclists. Its name comes from the bridge's location between France, Germany and Switzerland (about 200 meters).
The Rhine seems very wide at this point and the reflection of the sky when there are clouds and Sunshine is really quite beautiful even though there are industrial areas around. The 40 or 50 swans, many ducks and seagulls are also impressive to see (feeding is forbidden with a significant fine).
The access for bikes, pushchairs and wheelchairs is excellent with a lift at the French side. There is a park with crazy golf and a shopping centre with a cinema on the German side. You are allowed to take your shopping trolley over to France and leave it by the lift. At night the bridge is well lit making it a good option for taking the Tram 8 at Weil am Rhein to/from Basel in the evening.
In France the historical, but recently remodelled, Place Abatucci is a short distance from the bridge where there are a couple of great bakeries and some restaurants. The only shame is that the Huningue side of the river North towards the campsite has not been made pedestrian friendly (if you take the road, there's no pavement) and the scrub land/car park near the bridge is an eyesore. Hopefully this will also be remodelled in the near future!

The Kunstmuseum Basel is home to one of the largest and oldest public museum collections in Europe. In its unique history, it has assembled works from the early fifteenth century to the present. The Kunstmuseum Basel houses the Galerie (Gallery) and the Kupferstichkabinett (Department of Prints and Drawings). The main focus is on paintings and drawings by artists active in the Upper Rhine region between 1400 and 1600 and of the 19th and 21st century. The Kunstmuseum Basel possesses the world`s largest collection of works by the Holbein family. Further examples of Renaissance art include major pieces by masters such as Konrad Witz, Martin Schongauer, Lucas Cranach the Elder and Matthias Grünewald. Most of these early treasures originally belonged to the collection of a Basel lawyer, Basilius Amerbach. Purchased by the city in 1661, they formed the core of the world`s first public municipal museum. Paintings by Basel-born Arnold Böcklin feature among the 19th-century highlights. In the field of 20th-century art, the accent is on Cubism (Picasso, Braque, Léger), German Expressionism, Abstract Expressionism and American art since 1950. Contemporary art is exhibited at the Museum für Gegenwartskunst (Museum of Contemporary Art).
A superb art museum with so much to see in an excellent setting. Our visit coincided with the Chagall exhibition and museumnacht when Basel museums are open until 2pm. Set aside a few hours to fully appreciate all that there is to see. Would recommend a Basel Card which gives half price entry to all museums and free use of public transport.

I was astonished the first time I visited the art museum installed in the old Fernet Branca-factory in St. Louis. For a fairly small provincial town, it keeps a high standard. I have seen lots of really good artists here, ranging from Olivier Debrè to Charles Pollock, and I` m impressed by the quality of the Exhibitions.
Absolutely worth a visit.
