If you remember from our trip to Vitra, making your way into Germany from Basel doesn’t take long. And just outside of Basel, on the banks of the Rhine, is a quaint town that sits right on the border of Switzerland and Germany.
Today Rheinfelden can refer to a Swiss town or a German town. Yes in 1802 Napoleon set the border between Switzerland and Germany and cut good ol Rheinfelden along the Rhine.
Last week my Tita Clarissa and I traveled to the Swiss Rheinfelden for an afternoon at sole uno, a lovely spa with saunas and thermal baths (but more on that on a later day). After a bit of relaxation we made our way through Rheinfelden to view the colorful buildings in old town and to catch the sunset over the Rhine.
Then we had to make a cheeky walk over into Rheinfelden, Germany.
And after all that bathing, photographing, and border hopping, Tita Clarissa and I had to stop for a glass of wine and a snack before heading home. Life can be tough.
