City Cruises

There’s something to see on every corner. Basle has published Switzerland’s first graffiti city guide to help you discover the vibrant word of street art. What’s more, almost every star architect has designed a modern building here, providing an attractive counterpoint to the rustic, welcoming old town. In Basle, art is omnipresent. And on New Year’s Eve, it’s even in the sky! The fireworks above the Rhine are a display of pyrotechnical creativity. Year after year, their sparkling effects amaze onlookers. People flock to the bank of the river, but the best view is from the water. Of course, other cities on the Rhine offer unique and impressive sights as you make your way along this New Year’s route. The best way to relax after a trip to breathtaking Strasbourg Cathedral is with a glass of local white wine beside one of the small burbling canals in the quaint quarter known as “La Petite France”. On your way back, you should listen very carefully as you pass one particular point: is it just the rush of the river you hear, or is it the sound of Lorelei singing on the rugged rock above?
