David’s Been Here brings you all the best sites of Basel, Switzerland. Here David tours the Middle Bridge– the main and central-most bridge of the city. Built in 1226, this bridge was once the only bridge spanning the River Rheine from here all the way to the ocean. Once built partially with wood to control entrance to the city from Germany, this site is loaded with history as well as beautiful views, and is definitely worth a visit when touring around Basel. For more information on the Middle Bridge and Basel, check out the David’s Been Here Guide to Switzerland, now available for your Kindle as well.
