Although the border does not pass directly through Dreilaendereck, the three countries had a treaty signed of having only the monument in three countries. It is sooooooooooooooo fun especially with kids to run three to countries and able to say "I was in three countries less then 30 seconds!" It takes a long walk but it is really fun and... More

There is only a monument and nothing else. Views over the Rhein to France and straight over you can see the parking of the shopping center in Germany. There is a Restaurant, but only open in summer time and if it isn't raining. So not open very often, except on a sunny Sunday in July and August. The food isn't... More

Don't bother heading out to this supposed 3-country point. It's not convenient to reach - you have to take the tram to Kleinhüningen and then walk up an industrial quay, with the only way to come back being the same way you came in. It's not a point where you are actually in 3 countries anyway.

As I understood - the real border is a little bit farer from the monument ... it's in the water 100 meters from the bank. So unfortunatelly I couldn't run around monument crying: "Switzerland! Germany! France!"=) But if you can realy imagine that it's the right one border or come in summer and swim - it's place to be seen..

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
