Rheinfahre, Basel

Hop aboard Rheinfahre for a relaxing and scenic boat trip across the Rhine. The company operates four small vessels that embark from various points along the river. These quirky boats are both powered and steered by cables and currents rather than engines. Not only does this foster a peaceful and quiet ride, but it is also extremely environmentally friendly.

Take in unusual and striking views of Basel’s landmarks, including churches and historical houses, as you relax in the covered or uncovered area. There is no schedule: simply wait by a mooring spot until one of the boats floats by. If the captain hasn’t spotted you, ring the moor’s bell to grab their attention.
