Just next to the bridge, you can cross the river with this nice little boat. Really easy to use, you just have to wait until the boat came. The price is not so expensive and you have a nice view on the old town.

The ferry is very convenient and extremely environmentally friendly. Only the force of the current is used to cross the river. The price is also very good as for Basel. The trip itself is about 5 minutes.

A must do, especially now when there are fewer tourists. We crossed twice and were alone both times. Gave a chance to chat with the ferrymen. The boats are 100% clean, use the energy of the river to push them across. The view up from the water is a perspective you don't a chance to enjoy.

Those small ferries are a special way to cross the river Rhine. Not only tourists, but also the local use them frequently.
