The rheinfare is both useful and fun, providing a quick and picturesque way to cross the river- especially beautiful in the sun!

We had a Basel card and one free boat trip was included. Easy to find and the trip was fine and short.

The ferry is a every day part of Basel life and you get a free trip with your free Basel card. Its a very short trip, only 3min roughly, but a lovely view that is just as quick as the l walking that bridge

A unique way to cross the Rhine, this ferry uses the current of the river to cut across the fast flow by tethering itself to an overhead cable.
Very pleasant and only takes about five minutes, depending on how fast the river is moving.
The Basel entitles you to one free crossing by way of a tear off strip, otherwise it was 1.6 Swiss Francs each way.
Something that has to be done whilst visiting Basel.

I read about this on TripAdvisor. After I checked into my hotel, I was given a voucher to take this across the Rhine. I was very pleased to try this unique form of transportation.

There were a lot of fellow tourists with me on the trip. The views were amazing, as was the trip itself. You simply float across the river, with the vessel tethered to a line that spans the Rhine.

I definitely recommend this!
