Only 25 km from Freiburg lies Breisach am Rhein, the true jewel of the Breisgau. This friendly city evokes more than 1650 years of history and stories. Despite the worst devastation of the French Wars of Independence and the Second World War, Breisach has preserved excellent evidence of the city’s long history.
In the history of Breisach there were rarely quiet times. The location on a rocky plateau directly on the banks of the Rhine, which the Romans already appreciated for strategic reasons, shaped the history of the small town in several respects. In its history, the city was equally at the mercy of the floods of the Rhine and of the great powers: a plaything for the Romans and Alemanni, the French and the Habsburgs. Traces of this eventful past can still be found throughout Breisach am Rhein. On our digital Breisach city tour you will experience the highlights of the city’s history and get answers to burning questions about what the Europa bull is and how Breisach got its city patrons Gervasius and Protasius. Our city tour in Breisach am Rhein takes you through the lower town from the former fishing grounds up to the Münsterberg, where the historic core of the city is located. The 41 m deep wheel well tower from the end of the 12th century testifies to the ingenuity of the miners. A cathedral with two different towers proudly towers over all the buildings. This church, which almost fell victim to a wrecking ball after it was destroyed in World War II, is a symbol of Breisach and should not be missed on a city tour. Breisach has many exciting and funny stories that we would like to tell you in our digital city tour of Breisach am Rhein!
