“At the Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois we are proud to have created what we have dubbed the Roadbook.”

This is a list of the most beautiful excursions in the Basel region. The best way to take advantage of our knowledge is to allow us to rent you a vintage car so you may explore the region in top class comfort and exclusive style.

Car enthusiasts will not want to miss a visit to the Cité de l’Automobile in Mulhouse. This French national museum houses the Schlumpf Collection, named after its founder Fritz Schlumpf and at 80,000 square feet is the world’s largest automobile museum.

From there we recommend you drive to one of Europe’s cheese Meccas. In the dreamy French town of Vieux-Ferrette you will find the legendary Sundgauer KäsKaller of Bernard Antony. His cheeses are sought after by the most illustrious customers, including members of the Japanese Imperial Family and Prince Albert of Monaco.

On the way back, you can stop off for a picnic at one of the countless scenic spots with the gourmet picnic basket our chef will be pleased to prepare for you. Enjoy the blue hour with select culinary delicacies such as Black Forest ham, seasonal petit fours and pastries.

Then as the sun slowly sets, return to Les Trois Rois, where we will provide you a memorable evening to match the wonderful day you have just had.”
