    The compactly built, listed monument Kaiserstuhl with its 700-year history lies on the steep slope of the Rhine bank and has the shape of an acute-angled triangle. The 36 m high upper tower (also called Roman tower) forms the upper peak. It towers over the town and is the only remaining part of the old fortifications.
    At the top of the steep slope was the small baron of the barons of Kaiserstuhl in the 12th century. After their extinction, the property passed to the barons of Regensberg. They founded a fortified town on the steep slope in 1254 and named it after the gender whose inheritance they had taken up. The town is the southern bridgehead of a bridge over the river that is believed to have existed since Roman times.
    The Catholic Church of St. Catherine dates from 1757 and is built in the Baroque style. It is considered the main work of the Kaiserstuhl sculptor and wood carver Franz Ludwig Wind. Particularly well preserved houses are the office building in the late Gothic style with its stair gables, the Palais Mayenfisch with French elements and the stately former inn «Zur Krone

    When you look at the tower and the old houses you feel like you have been transported back to the times of Wilhelm Tell, when the Rhine was the iron border.
