The local hero: Sunday brunch on the Rhystärn in Basel

The Rhystärn has been Basel’s passenger shipping flagship for almost three years. On the spacious panorama deck of the modern ship, the Basel skyline – which always surprises with architectural accents – can be experienced from a different – and above all very relaxed – perspective. The Rhystärn has also blossomed into a popular breakfast spot with a refreshing gastronomic offer that focuses on local and home-made products from A to Z. In the summer months, the “RHYbrunch” takes place on the Rhystärn every Sunday between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. And late risers can take a deep breath at this point: You don’t have to be on board at 10:00 a.m. The ship docks at the Basel shipyard every hour and lets passengers get on and off.
