Sole Uno Wellness-Welt

Eintauchen. Abtauchen. Auftauchen. Eintauchen in eine faszinierende Wellness-Welt. Schwerelos schweben wie im Toten Meer in der gesunden Rheinfelder Natursole(R). In der Sauna nach Tradition der Finnen und Russen relaxen. Wohltuende Massagen geniessen. Vom Alltag abtauchen im Feuer- und Eisbad, unter tropischem Regen, Alpen-Wasserfallen oder im Aromadampf. Frische tanken zu jeder Jahreszeit im herrlichen Park. Im sole uno wird Entspannung zum Erlebnis. Sie brauchen nur hier aufzutauchen.

I really appreciate this place as it focuses on what is important in spa, like quality and cleanliness of the establishement rather than fancy receptions or silly decors that serves no purpose. Pools indoors and outdoors, steam saunas with aromas such as lemon or eucalyptus (there are 3 different ones), fire and ice baths, ranging from 12-40 degrees, rain shower cave and my favourite, the salty pool in the basement. 12 % salt makes you float like in the dead sea and the underwater music just makes you totally relaxed.

Vogelpark Steinen

Visited this place with my wife and two children (5 & 3) in mid-aug.
Decided to do the monkey feeding only and skip the bird show. Monkey and peacock feeding was nice - we all enjoyed it, although i ask myself if it was worth the 40 euro we paid at entrance.

Erdmannshohle

Reviewed By Esty666 - Wickenburg, Arizona

This cave system is certainly not one of the real 'grand' ones as far as size and extent goes, but the stalactites and stalacmites are really awesome and beautiful to see, and the guided tour is well done. This is a place well worth visiting when you're in the area. Also suitable for kids as there aren't any precarious passages on the tour.

Rotteln Castle

Reviewed By happypanda17 - West Midlands, United Kingdom

If you are in the area, check out this castle. There is a trail that you can walk to get to the castle if you want to have a wander through the forest before you visit. It is mostly ruins now but still is an enjoyable day out. The castle has a museum section that explains the ruins. There are fantastic views of the surrounding countryside from the tower. I went during fall and it was lovely; the trees were turning orange and you could hear the crunch of leaves under your feet as you approached the castle. The restaurant is an essential stop if you go here! Great value for money and delicious food!

Burgruine Barenfels

Reviewed By Cora R - The Hague, The Netherlands

Door de eerst beoordeling op tripadviser waren we getrikkert om de ruïne te gaan bekijken. Het was een zware klim naar boven. Maar we werden met een prachtig uitzicht beloond op de Grand Ballons van de Vogezen, de Rijn door het dal van t zwarte woud en heel in de verte het uitzicht op de Zwitserse Alpen. Werkelijk de moeite waard.

Alte Holzbrucke

Reviewed By lilliputz - Zurich, Switzerland

This bridge connects Bad Säckingen, Germany, on the north bank of the Rhine, with the Swiss village of Stein, on the south bank. It is also a pedestrian border crossing (unmanned). Having seen many such Bridges through central Europe, still I like this one, as a well decorated, well structured and architectonically beautiful specimen. Maybe 10 minutes walk from both the German and the Swiss railway stations, the walk is clearly indicated.

Fondation Beyeler

ABOUT THE FONDATION BEYELER The Fondation Beyeler is a museum of modern and contemporary art open 365 days a year. It is considered one of the world's most beautiful museums. Its Exhibitions of renowned artists of the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries have brought the museum international recognition and established it as Switzerland's most popular art museum. The focus is the visitor's personal and sensory experiences in encountering art and nature. The art museum is located in an English park with a historical villa, old trees, and water lily ponds. The museum building, designed by award-winning Italian architect Renzo Piano, fits elegantly into the cultural landscape and offers beautiful views of the park, cornfields, grazing cows and sheep, as well as the vineyards at the foothills of the Black Forest. The spacious rooms showcase the art in the most beautiful natural light. A green conservatory invites you to linger and read. The Fondation Beyeler combines nature, art, and architecture in a unique harmony. It presents high-quality art to a wide audience and seeks especially to reach young people. This was especially important to the founders, Ernst and Hildy Beyeler. It was for this reason that they founded the Beyeler Stiftung in 1982 and in 1997 opened the Fondation Beyeler in their hometown of Riehen near Basel. They gave the Fondation their valuable art collection and donated the renowned museum building by Renzo Piano to house it. Since the founder's death, the Beyeler Foundation is overseen by the Board of Trustees, presided by Hansjorg Wyss. Sam Keller has been the director of the Fondation Beyeler since 2008. The Beyeler Stiftung recently acquired the neighboring Iselin-Weber-Park and is planning an extension with Swiss architect Peter Zumthor. The Beyeler Collection is presented several times a year in rotating Exhibitions. It comprises roughly 300 works of post-impressionism, classic modern and contemporary art, and 30 ethnographic art objects from Africa, Oceania, and Alaska. The collection is researched and maintained by the Fondation's own team of conservators and restorers. The museum also houses works on permanent loan from artists and associated collections such as the Daros Collection, the Collection Renard, and Anthax Collection Marx. The Fondation Beyeler regularly organizes Exhibitions dedicated to the great masters of modern art and the major artists of our time. Thematic Exhibitions about cities and art movements that played a decisive role in the development of modern art are presented periodically. Projects with contemporary artists are also realized every year in the museum and in public spaces. The Fondation Beyeler regularly cooperates with leading international museums and cultural institutions. Cultural events and art mediation expand the array of offerings and make art more easily accessible. The Fondation's diverse program includes artist talks, Concerts, dance Performances, recitals, lectures, panel discussions, cabaret, and film screenings. Internationally acclaimed artists, scientists, musicians, dancers, actors, directors, and other personalities are regularly invited as guests. Guided tours, workshops, and games for young people, families, schools, companies, clubs, and groups are also offered daily. The Fondation Beyeler is funded and supported by contributions from the Beyeler Foundation, the Hansjorg Wyss Foundation, sponsoring partners, patrons, members of the Friends of the Fondation Beyeler, subsidies from the Canton Basel-Stadt and the Community of Riehen, project contributions from the Canton Basel-Landschaft, and especially by visitor admission fees. The Fondation Beyeler is an open and active museum that promotes access to art, cultural education and experiences, as well as interpersonal encounters. The restaurant and the museum shop contribute to this as well. Since its opening in 1997, over 6 million people have visited the museum: half from Switzerland, the other half from its neighboring countries and around the world. The Fondation Beyeler's website provides insight into the collections and activities. It also includes films, photographs, and texts about artists, Exhibitions, events, art mediation, restoration, publications, editions, and other projects.

The museum is fantastic (see other reviews) but plan to have lunch there as well,
Their restaurant is a bit out of the way unless one visits the museum but otherwise just as much a highlight as the museum itself. Modest selection but a bit of everything, impressive for the eyes as well as for the palate, at affordable prices and professionally served by friendly staff.

Augusta Raurica

The Roman town only a stone’s throw from Basel in SwitzerlandAn outing for the whole family that offers much and costs little.The imposing Roman theatre, the authentic Roman villa, the mysterious well shaft, the biggest silver treasure of late antiquity, accessible sewer tunnels and the winsome animals in the animal park are only a few of the attractions that you should not miss.Off to roman times!

Reviewed By Plino - Cologne, Germany

Located close to Basel it was a very large settlement. it had one Amphitheatre and a Theater (The difference: is simple theater is the half of the Amphitheatre). The Gladiators were in an Amphitheater like the Colosseum. The local museum is interesting and the silver treasure interesting. It will help you to understand the richness of the Roman empire. When you see this treasure and imagine that the owner was not of importance then you imagine the amounts of gold an silver in circulation then. Thanks God I have a credit card.

Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein

Reviewed By bathtravel123 - Bath, Maine

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.
