    Partly very narrow bridge, caution when cruising.

    The Ryburg-Schwörstadt power plant is a Swiss stock corporation based in Rheinfelden in the canton of Aargau. It was founded on October 21, 1926. The power plant was built between 1927 and 1931. It is located on the Upper Rhine, around 21 kilometers upstream from Basel, on the border between Germany and Switzerland, and was one of the first hydropower plants on the Rhine to have all the features of a modern river power plant. The low-pressure drive was built across the river and has four powerful Kaplan turbines with a total installed capacity of 120 megawatts. This makes the power plant the most powerful hydropower plant on the Upper Rhine even today. To keep the traffic jam target constant, a 111m long weir with four movable flaps (weir openings) was installed. This measure significantly changed the character of the Rhine on this section of the river, since the gradient of the water was reduced very sharply. A modernization took place between 1977 and 1984.
    From September 2014, pedestrians and cyclists can cross the state border between Germany and Switzerland in the summer months using a newly built bicycle and pedestrian footbridge below the power plant.
