Here the border of France, German and Switzerland meet. There is a special display that sits at the point where the countries meet. This means you can run from Switzerland, through France & Germany and back in 10 seconds. Where else can you do that with no border guards? Then there are all the boats and the river to see.

This place was not easy to get to. There is not much around in the area, it is very industrial, but my partner and I decided to walk all the way from Basel so when we finally found it, it was very satisfying. Once you do finally make it, you are able to make it to all three countries with... More

The Dreilaendereck is about a 15-minute confusing walk from the closest Tram and bus line. Except for the viewpoint itself, there is not much in this area except for warehouses, rail containers and a dock for boats and ships. So, one would mostly come here only to this island to view the blossom of peace for Germany, France and Switzerland.... More

Strange but interesting. Hard to find without a gps... it is in the port or something and it is a nice monument to see and experience. Quite unique if you think what it actually represents. Glad we went and it is a great place to take unique photos. Recommended and we would go back if again in the area.

I thought this was really cool, even though my friends who live in Basel did not! I definitely recommend it for a photo op, but be aware you need a car or taxi to get there. It is not walkable from downtown Basel!

Although its something people have never heard of and its somewhere to say you have been, there was nothing around it to acknowledge it, unless it was closed but no restaurant/bar or souvenir shop, it took a while to walk there so catch a tram to as far as you can then you will have to walk, it is an...

Pro: You can be in 3 countries at the same time, which is pretty cool. But the neighborhood, Kleinhünigen.... Kleinhünigen is a toilet and it is disgusting. It is dirty, and too industrial and non-scenic. It depends. But from my perspective and my point of view, this wouldn't be the first place I would visit.......

Had to walk around 1km from the nearest tram station. Not convenient for ppl travel with babies. You can travel to 3 countries by foot in a minute. And thats the only interesting point.
