It was a long walk to get here.....seemed kind of hidden and not a popular place. But, it was still a good 'free' activity to do while in Basel.

For someone who visualizes border to be fences, this is a place to visit if you are in the Trination area. From here, you could see an amazing view of the Rhine river. You could stroll from Basel to Germany and cross across the bridge into Huningue and walk there to Basel again.

Nice view of Rhine River where Germany, France and Switzerland meet. In an industrial area . Interesting site to say you visited 3 countries . Some river cruise ships leave from here.

A place that you need to visit just to say you have stood in three lands at one time. Really simple and basic with no frills but fun to visit with friends and get a snap.

This is a monument that shows where the borders of Switzerland, France, and Germany meet. The monument itself isn't a huge deal, but the walk there from the city center is a really nice walk through the Port of Basel and it's surrounding areas, and going here on a nice day would be totally worth your while. The monument is... More

Unless you're utterly captivated by the idea of taking a photo of a metal sculpture pointing out an industrial corner of the world where Switzerland, Germany, and France meet -- skip it.

Located down by the city’s river port basins and adjacent to the river proper, this tri-country corner is mainly worth visiting in summer for a pleasant atmosphere by the riverside. You can watch the barges and pleasure craft sail past or board a river cruise vessel there – apart from that, there’s nothing to do except take a picture of... More

We read about Dreilaendereck (3 countries corner) where France & Germany & Switzerland meet and wanted to go there while we were staying in Basel. Fortunately we were with someone who knew right where it was & how to get there. We first took a tram & then walked about 15 - 20 minutes part of the time along the... More
