Switzerland: SBB

I've always liked Basel since you are able to take a tram from Switzerland to both Germany and France. But this time, I got a bit disappointed, due to passport control inside the tram at the border with Germany, the day before.
It happened right here, and in the morning I can view the border from my hotel room in Germany (which is obviously cheaper than in Switzerland).
There are however no controls today, so I can walk right through the border
Here it is, the border between Germany and Switzerland
