La Passerelle des Trois Pays: between France, Germany and Switzerland!


The bridge of the Three Countries is an original bridge located in Huningue, in the south of Alsace. It crosses the Rhine and connects France to Germany.

Laurène is the blog's creator. Originally from Brittany but now living in Alsace, she has fallen in love with her adopted region and loves exploring its every nook and cranny to unearth great ideas to share with you!

Why three countries then? From the bridge, you can see Germany on one side, France on the other and Switzerland on the other! It is also easy to reach Switzerland once you have passed the German side.

The view on the Rhine is quite industrial, but the place is still nice. The architecture of the bridge is interesting and I think it’s nice to be able to go for a bite to eat or a beer in Germany in 5 minutes on foot if we feel like it! For shopping enthusiasts, the Weil-am-Rhein Center should also appeal to you.

  • Fun to have a view on 3 countries!
  • To be able to cross the border very easily
  • Architecture of the bridge
  • The place remains quite industrial
