What a great way to cross the river! Free on the Basel card or 1.80 francs. Only takes a few minutes though well worth doing!

If you go to Basel, you can explore the city using the bridges. Stop on one of them and look for a cable with a little boat attached to it and use the Rheinfähre for your next crossing. It’s a unique way to cross the Rhine.

You should take some coins with you, as my card was'nt accepted, in general it connects just two sides of the river though the briges do a well job, its only a next to river approach. Its great. I found it useful for people who have difficulty to clime a lot up/down.

This river crossing is very quick as it uses the fast flow of the current to guide you over. If you stay in any hotel you get a free coupon for each person in your party. The guys running it are very friendly and efficient. The cost is 1.80chf for adults and worth every cent.
