Huningue is located on the Rhine at the corner of the Three Borders: Swiss, German and French. The name Huningue appears for the first time in a document dated 828. In 1679, Louis XIV had Vauban build a fortress here as a crossing point on the Rhine, which Basel, a neighbouring Swiss city, would always consider a threat. The fortress will play its role as a lock for 136 years. After 1815, it was dismantled at Switzerland's request.
