Swimming in the Rhine

Hi forum members,

I'm just checking, is swimming in the Rhine in Basel in the night prohibited?

It is not prohibited more up river in Kanton Schaffhausen!
Just watch out for the mosquitoes and zillions of gnats!

Re: Swimming in the Rhine

I really would not recommend swimming in the Rhein after sunset. It's a dangerous river anyway without the added danger of lack of light and I have seen the river police fishing people out...whether it is illegal though I do not know.
