A city of many faces and changing moods from idyllic residential neighbourhoods to picturesque alleys in the old town, and to modern and cool urban dwellings, you’ll find all these and much more in its quarters. Let yourself be inspired.

This is one of the few places in the world that is a confluence of 3 countries. You are standing at a point where Switzerland, Germany, and France meet at the Rhine River. Nice photo op.

Short tram ride from city centre then a good 15 min walk. The walk is not that exciting since you're walking past docked boats & industry along the river. Once you're there, you can see the pedestrian bridge that takes you from Germany to France....More
