  • Went for the august festival - though it is geared for children and families, there are still a lot of interesting activities going on for adults. The glassmaking tent was great.
  • Surprisingly interesting location. One can make a small fun hike there.
  • "Restored" theatre giving wonderful views over the area including Basel itself. Fab museum across the road. Don't miss it.
  • Beautiful and well maintained, gives a roman and Mediterranean feeling
  • This was a truly beautiful place with lots of ancient Roman ruins. They are very old and not all are intact but for me, that's part of its charm. They are spread apart as it is a former village or town, but it is very much worth the walk.
