River Cruises

River cruises starting and ending in Basel are becoming increasingly popular. The St. Johann landing stage, equipped with state-of-the-art electricity and water supply, is located just ten minutes' walk from the city centre.


A cruise on the Rhine between Basel and Amsterdam is a unique experience. Seize the opportunity and get to know the treasures of Basel, either before or after your trip. For example, you can explore three countries at once, visit first-class exhibitions in one of the 40-plus museums, or stroll through the picturesque old town of Basel.
