Up the Rhine into Switzerland

Mulhouse is only a few kms from the Rhine and its' navigable limit in 'Basel' Switzerland, the temptation to venture into yet another country, too much to resist.

Heading up the Rhine to the Swiss border

Basel is the navigable limit for these massive Rhine cruisers 

We are able to push on right up to the old Basel bridge

Basel town hall

The old trams still run around the city

A bizarre sport is floating down the Rhine through the city bridges

From Basel we head downstream through two massive Rhine locks before turning off onto the little known Colmar canal.

We share the Rhine locks with these two huge barges

The quiet Colmar canal
