Harbor Tours With a Solar Ferry
The Verkehrsdrehscheibe Schweiz / Hafenmuseum (Transportation Hub Switzerland / Harbor Museum) presents an exciting exhibition about the history of shipping, the importance of logistics in Basel, and the operation of the port of Basel. Here, you will find many models of ships from the entire port area, various films, showcases, and touch tables. Special exhibition drawers have been set up for children. One of the main features of the exhibition is a Switzerland's only high-seas ship simulator that can be used to train naval officers and practice navigating large vessels on the oceans.
On several Saturdays throughout the year, people are invited to take a harbor tour with the solar ferry. Departure is every half and full hour, and tours lasts approximately 25 minutes. You can board the Solar Ferry next to the harbor museum at the Gelpke fountain.
Price is CHF 5 per person; children up to age 12 are free.
