Only 25 km from Freiburg lies Breisach am Rhein, a real gem of the Breisgau region. The friendly little town can look back on over 1650 years full of history and stories. Despite the severe destruction in the French Revolutionary Wars and in the Second World War, historical elements, witnesses of its long city history, have survived. This private tour of Breisach for families helps you to explore the lower town and the Münsterberg and brings you closer to the sights.
A guided tour of Breisach is an alternative for guests in the Kaiserstuhl and Marktgräfler Land who are already familiar with Freiburg and Basel. Breisach am Rhein seems calm and contemplative today, but in its history there have rarely been quiet times.
The meeting point for the tour is the Breisach Touristik. You will reach the Münsterberg via a labyrinth of stairs. There, 35 meters above the Rhine plain, the history of Breisach am Rhein began as a Roman fortress more than 1650 years ago. Your tour guide will tell you about the early years of the city's history. Together you will also enjoy the view of the Upper Rhine: in the west the Vosges, in the east the Black Forest, in the south you will look towards Basel and to the north towards Strasbourg. In between are the Kaiserstuhl and Alsace.
After you have dealt with geography, geology and economy, you will dedicate yourself to the Breisach Minster and consider its structural features. Although you will not go into the minster, your tour guide will explain the interior so that you will be able to enter and discover what has been discussed on your own in your free time.
You will then continue to the Radbrunnenturm, which played an important role in the water supply of Breisach. On the way from Münsterberg back to Neustadt, your guide will tell you stories which will help you imagine everyday life in a city like Breisach.
