Three-country Corner Basel

The Sri Chinmoy peace blossom at the three-country point or corner (Dreiländereck) in Basel marks the location in the Rhine where Switzerland, Germany and France meet.

It is one of the five hundred Sri Chinmoy places worldwide. The source of inspiration for this monument was Albert Einstein (1879-1955) who lived for many years in Bern (1902-1909) and developed his most relevant theories in this city.

This point also marks the beginning (or end) of the Grand Tour of Switzerland.
