Photographer's Note

The city of Basel lies in the "three countries corner" as the region is sometimes called. Thus taking a walk in the forests in the perimeters of the city, this sign is not an unusual sight. Here we can see the heavily guarded border :-)) between Switzerland and Germany on the Chrischona hill.It is quite normal that, while taking a normal sunday afternoon stroll in the woods you will unknowingly having set foot in three countries at once. The border between Switzerland, France and Germany is not always so clearly marked as here and people strolling in the forest never think twice about which country they in at present.
