Past Basel the waters of the River Rhine split in Märkt. One arm serves as a underway (Grand Canal) and transports cargo as far as the Atlantic, the other arm flows north along the last kilometres of the Old Rhine which remains nearly untouched to date. The first few kilometres of this stretch flow along quietly, just what you need to let go of your stressful day-to-day life and relax. Soon after, the first waves announce a steep slope, promising fun and action on the river. Suddenly, we’re about to reach our trip’s most exciting rapid! The Isteiner Schwelle reminds us of the past of this area as part of the mountainous Jura! The “Isteiner Klotz” was a rock formation formerly blocking the river’s passage north. Today, all that remains is the impressive limestone sills. There are four of them, making for a popular daytrip destination. While most people can only admire the sills from a safe distance on the riverbank, we’ll be right in the middle of the river, where the action takes place!
