Trip Moments

The city of Basel is actually divided by the Rhine River. The left bank is called Grand Basel, which is an economic commercial and leisure shopping center. The right bank is called Little Basel. It is mainly a flower shop, a studio, a craft workshop, and a fine wood. A caf serving cheese snacks and drinks. Basel's Old Town is a striking medieval building that spreads over the hilly embankments. At the same time, he is also a progressive modern city with more than 40 art and culture museums and a history of Basel. The long streets add a modern touch. Weird all kinds of art graffiti, there are very few pedestrians on the road, maybe it is the working time at this time, and we are also in the relatively remote industrial park. But looking at these young performance art graffiti along the way, you can feel the culture of the younger generation of Basel. After the riverside passes through three bridges, the last one is an old bridge - Selzhong Bridge, which is also the history of the "unpleasant" of Basel and Little Basel. Going to the old town of Basel, behind the old bridge with the flag waving, I have seen the charming buildings of the old city of Basel. The old bridge is hung with the flags of various countries. It can be seen that Basel is a very liberal and vibrant city. Basel is the home of tennis superstar Federer, who was born and raised here. In his words, it is "one of the most beautiful cities in the world". Everyone's hometown is beautiful, but Basel does have something to stop. Basel is the place to live.

Basel at the junction of the three countries of Farrell has a "Three Kingdoms Junction Monument" - this place is quite difficult to find, you must first pass through an inaccessible industrial area, and then take a little while to see this rocket. A monument on the banks of the Rhine with the national flags of Switzerland, France and Germany. Basel is indeed a very "international" city. Large companies such as Novartis and Roche and countless small and medium-sized enterprises are located here. There are countless "international residents" in the city. Going forward from the "Three Kingdoms Junction Monument" for a little while is the territory of Germany. After turning over the bridge and crossing the Rhine, it will be in France. Ten minutes through the Three Kingdoms, it is as simple as walking in the same city. wants to come to Switzerland with high prices, and the proximity of France and Germany is much more affordable, so I walked a few minutes from the monument and saw a mighty when I walked over a small bridge to Germany. Shopping army, and some even dragged the box... Their goal is a German mall with a bridge at the border. In the mall, people can be said to be crowded, people are crowded, the price of goods in supermarkets is indeed much cheaper than in Switzerland, and tax rebates are also available! Customs and shopping malls are almost a step away, and the tax rebate team is also discharged to the oldest, all of them are carrying big bags and eyebrows and smiling... It seems that people all over the world like to be cheap, that is, in wealthy Switzerland, no exception.
