    The whole area is very worth seeing and also offers an otherwise traffic-free way to cross the Rhine between Germany and Switzerland. So you can save the rather tedious crossing of Basel. On the Swiss side of Kaiseraugst offer several beautiful routes, on German side you can avoid in Wyhlen with the highway in the direction of Inzlingen the busy Federal Road 34.

On the north side of the Rhine is the community Grenzach-Wyhlen. Right in the middle of the weir, the border between Germany and Switzerland runs

    A full-day excursion to the KW with a 200km journey may not be worth it, but the KraftWerk Augst is worth gold as a border and Rhine crossing.
