    If you do not know it, you can imagine it before he or she has experienced it with your own eyes. The city is built on several hills. And they all bear the name ... berg in their name: Kohlenberg, Spalenberg, Münsterberg uwm. All these hills are located south of the Rhine, while the northern part of the city on the Kleinbasler side is rather flat. But if you want to see something of the city, you should take the time to climb the hills of Basel.
    After Zurich and Geneva, Basel is the third largest city in Switzerland with 175,113 inhabitants (as of 31 December 2015)

    For biking through Basel along the Rhine the trail on the eastern (northern) bank seems to have less interruptions by stairs or crossings.
