Basel prints incomprehensible English language brochure
The Basel Tourist Office is under fire for printing an English language brochure that’s being described as ‘incomprehensible’.
It seems the text has been directly translated from German – which doesn’t work too well in English.
Phrases like ‘you will not be able to avoid the Rhine’ – suggests it would be better to do so, and another ‘Grasp the Toilet’ will have many tourists scratching their heads.
The tourist office says it will be fixed by the time the brochure goes to print again.
