Transportation from Port to Airport

by sometimer

Has anyone taken the Viking Rhine River cruise that lands in Basel? We are looking for means of transportation from the river port to the airport. Can someone help?

Re: Transportation from Port to Airport

by K_V_B

AFAIK Viking can organize transfer for you if not then there is a frequent bus service from the main Basel railway station to the airport, and there is public transport from everywhere in basel to the main station.
Find out where exactly the ship is docking and then use www.sbb.ch to find out the timetables.

Travel Tips for Basel

Munster

by Wallace&Murron

The Munster is probably the most recognisable landmark in Basel. It looks wonderful from afar, walking along the bank of the Rhein; but really has to be seen close up to be appreciated. I hope these photos go some way to showing this.

Excursions: Riehen

by german_eagle

When (if!) you have enough of bustling city life it is just a quick train ride to Riehen, a "suburb" of Basel in the north of the city. Riehen is located on the right bank of the Rhine river at the foot of the Black Forest mountains. Until the early 20th century it had been a village with a few manors owned by the leading Basel families. Now Riehen is a favourite residential area of Basel, part of the canton Basel-Stadt, but in regards to administration an independent town. It has preserved much of the rural charm, some of the old manors are well preserved and some were turned into museums or other sorts of public buildings (e.g. schools). Almost all of them are surrounded by beautiful gardens.

Riehen is famous for the Fondation Beyeler, a highlight for fans of art (see separate tip). But there is also a nice parish church, a toy-, village- and viticulture museum and then there are the gardens mentioned above. Plenty of reasons to go to Riehen. Take the tram #6, Riehen is included in the Mobility Ticket. I enjoyed the Fondation Beyeler very much, no doubt there. But my fondest memories of Riehen are the strolls through the village, gazing at the foliage in Sarasin Park (vis-a-vis the Fondation), the walk around the so called "Kirchenburg" in the centre that goes back more than thousand years, and the visit of the toy-, village- and viticulture museum.

by sarahkathryn

Unlike in France, when the Swiss greet good friends they do so by kissing three times, not twice. Everyone also shake hands with everyone when arriving and leaving, not just the oldies. Unfortunately I still havn't quite worked out when exactly to do what, how do you judge if your friendship has reached kissing terms or is still at the handshaking stage?!?! Can anyone enlighten me?!?!

However, there are a lot of French people in Basel, they kiss twice. The Italians, there a quite a few of them too, kiss once. And if someone is being really mean and wants to confuse you then it's four!

Fountain-Water Tour

by Myndo

Its a guided tour. Takes 1.5 hours
They only take 25 persons and it may be a little pricey, but interesting.

You will have a closer look (and explanations) to the fountains in Basel. There are a lot of fountains dating from various periods.

On the tour from the Fischmarkt to the St. Albantal you also learn about the water supply in old Basel.

On this site you find information about all the fountains in Basel (only iin German, sorry):

Trams

by KennetRose

You may have worked out that I just love trams. Why can't we have them in UK cities? In Basel, if you just miss a tram, you can be sure another will be along in precisely 7 1/2 minutes.

Actually I especially loved this tram - who says the Swiss have no sense of fun?
