Ferries in Basel

In Basel these little ferries really amazed us as the current pushes the boat across the river! The ferries are attached by a cable to a block that rides along another cable that spans the river at a height of ca. 25 meters.

I did this on my last visit to Basel as well. I love the ride and the experience. I used to live about 5km down the river in France.. I used to walk to the waters edge daily and enjoy the city...

It's so beautiful there! Glad you were visiting. :-)
