Kleiner Dreiland-Radweg

This pleasurable tour is located at the southern bend of the Rhine and connects Switzerland, Germany and France. Between rivers, nature reserves and a remarkable architectural heritage, the diversity of the border triangle can be explored.
Basel boasts an incomparable architecture. It ranges from the Gothic style of Basel's cathedral and town hall to the many contemporary buildings (former Warteck brewery, Roche tower, etc.). With its numerous museums, the city is also a cultural centre and has much to offer in the way of a good life: what could be better than to linger in one of the parks, pedal along the Rhine and enjoy the special Basel atmosphere?

Following the south bank of the Rhine, the route first reaches the lowest point of Baselland, the "Birschöpfli". From the power station island in Birsfelden, you can admire the two Roche towers which dominate the skyline of Basel. Numerous other hydroelectric power stations are located on the Rhine and other rivers, including the dams and hydroelectric power stations in Märkt and in Kembs, a little further away. These impressive structures on the Rhine island create a link between Germany and France.

On the way there, you will cross a first nature reserve: the Krebsbach valley. The 23-hectare green area is an important habitat for numerous animal and plant species. The Rhine island is an ideal area for flora and fauna: it is part of the Petite Camargue Alsacienne, the first nature reserve in Alsace. It covers more than 900 hectares and is home to some 40 species of dragonflies, 170 birds and 70 flower types. The cycle route runs along a large part of the nature reserve and follows the Huningue canal before arriving at the Parc des Eaux-Vives of Huningue. From there, it continues along the banks of the Rhine back to Basel.
