Very worth seeing small town.
From the Münsterberg you have a beautiful view of the Rhine valley.
Often in the focus of German and European politics, the history of the "mother city of Breisgau" goes back over 4000 years.People settled on the plateau of today's Münsterberg in the Neolithic Age and in the Celts there was a princely seat here,
who maintained trade relations into the Mediterranean.
From then on Breisach became the religious and cultural center of the emerging community under the influence of the ruling kings thanks to its many buildings.
