To contiunue my Tour de Suisse, today I am going to tell you about my favorite route in Basel. Although the city is probably most famous for its chemical, pharmaceutical industry and the football club, there are more beautiful running areas. The river of Rhine was my favorite one. Every year there is a bridge run, trying to engage people to move more. If you are too lazy or look for an amazing reward after your efforts, just go into the river and let yourself carry across the city for 15 minutes. There is also a public event for that, called Rheinschwimmen. At the riverside there are several kiosks called “Buvettes” and cosy bars. All of them have different menues and mostly guests. Next to the motorway bridge is an arts museum with international reputation. The last bridge and turning point is crossing a hydroelectric power station, followed by a nice park on the other side. Crossing the river again, you might find yourself in another older area, to cross the river again on the oldest bridge to the other side. There you pass one of the most beautiful hotels in Switzerland the Trois Rois, with its wonderful rooftop suite. Later you cross a place called “Totentanz” meaning “death dance” and might decide to cross the river again to follow the more urban districs of the city along Klybeckstrasse. From there you cross the river again on the northern motorway bridge and find yourself in Volta Street nearly in France: Et voila, easy 12 kilometers. As an economist I am of course very impressed by the medical history of the city dealing from their point of view with associations and their development. Furtunately we are in the 21st century, and the manifold hypotheses of the “collegues” are under improved scientific and digital verification as hopefully soon under new therapy.
