Switzerland’s third largest city – Basel – is on the River Rhine where the French, German and Swiss borders all meet.
I’m writing this evening from the train. I departed from Freiburg for the final time shortly after 16:15.
Forget the small city hotel I stayed at in Munich, or the large chain hotel I stayed at in Berlin; this time is was in a self-catering cottage in a residentual area (St. Georgen) of Freiburg.
Today I have been on the railways of Baden-Württemberg, getting out and about to visit the Black Forest villages.
My first port of call was to the Farmer’s Market. This daily market can be found 6 mornings a week in the area surrounding the Münster. Fresh fruit and veg, cheese, eggs, and meats can be bought here.
EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg is located entirely in France. France was the country I arrived in when I landed just before 11 o’ clock local time (10 o’ clock UK time) this morning.
Located within France, about a mile from the Swiss border and not far from Germany either is the EuroAirport which serves Basel (in Switzerland), Mulhouse (in France) and Freiburg (in Germany).
If money was no object, I would probably spend my time travelling (as well as listening to the radio of course).
