View over the river



The temperature of water is shown in these blue little panels along the river

This is more of a off to swim post 😛

One of the top summer activities in Basel, in my opinion, is to swim in the river. If you are visiting Basel during the summer make sure you try it!

Throughout the city you’ll find these weird fish-looking bags displayed on outdoors, they are called wickelfisch. They are great because you can put your clothes, cellphones, keys, anything you have on you in it and all you need to do is to fold the opening closed (around 7 times) and the bag will inflate with the air trapped inside. In the end you’ll have a great bag to put your stuff in and at the same time a buoy to float down the river.

A lot of people bike until the river entrance by the Tinguely museum
