The Port

Basel port has been active since the Middle Ages in traffic between the Mediterranean and the North Sea, Swabia and Burgundy, and has found a new dynamism since the start of the 20C, after having been eclipsed for a time by the construction of the major Alpine roads and railways. In summer, excursions including a visit of this port, which is mainly used for importing goods, are made on the Rhine and the Kembs canal.
