Basel, on the Swiss border with France and Germany, is the great gateway to this EuroVelo 6 stage. Known as the town of 40 museums, it has much to entice visitors. Follow the Rhine to enter Germany briefly and cross the iconic Trois Pays (Three Countries) footbridge. Entering France, the Huningue Canal leads to Kembs via Alsace’s ‘Little Camargue’ marshes. This stage is very easy.
