Rhine Cruises Basel
There is always something to experience aboard the flotilla of the Basle passenger cruise company: lock passages between Basle and Rheinfelden, city and harbour tours, musical Fondue cruises and much more.
The city and harbour tours take roughly one hour. They take visitors past the charming facades of the Basle old town, Basle cathedral and the ancient city walls near the St. Alban valley, further along the Kleinbasle Rhine shores up to the border triangle and the Basle Rhine harbour, which is the loading and unloading station of countless goods.
The two-and-a-half hour Rhine lock journey takes passengers along the Rhine shores from Basle to Rheinfelden. Two locks at Augst and Birsfelden have to be negotiated on the Swiss as well as the German side. Also, the vessel docks at several boat landings: at Kaiseraugst and at the former Roman city Augusta Raurica among others.
