In Lörrach, you can view the old castle ruins. From Lörrach as a base (as opposed to Switzerland), it is cheaper to visit Basel with its old town, the cathedral, and interesting museums and the zoo. From Lörrach, you can also visit the Feldberg, a bird park and zoo (Steinwasen), and a beautiful rose and plant park (Villa Ettenbühl). Here you can view 1,000 flowering roses and walk through a maze. In half an hour, you're in Rust, an amusement park similar to Disneyland
