The small town of Breisach is located on the Rhine River and is well-known as the gateway to Germany’s Black Forest. Despite 85% of the town being flattened during World War II, it has been successfully restored.

Today, Breisach is a quaint town with cobblestone streets lined with pastel-painted houses, shops, and cafes, plus a cathedral and medieval prison tower.

You can explore Breisach’s cobbled streets stopping in at shops, and sampling traditional fare at cafes and restaurants. Or visit the “Hagenbachturm" (Hagenbach Tower), the medieval prison tower, and the town’s iconic landmark, St. Stephansmünster (St. Stephen’s), a beautiful Romanesque-Gothic cathedral.
