Location & Arrival

Breisach, located by the river Rhine and the Kaiserstuhl mountain range at the same time, can look back on an eventful history: the town was a bridgehead, a fort and the "key of the kingdom" in former centuries. Built in the Romanesque and Gothic styles, the Stephansmünster (minster) gives the historical town centre its special character. Martin Schongauer's frescoes, with the Descent into Hell and the magnificent three-panelled altar carved from limewood by the artist "HL" are worth seeing. Breisach is also known for being the first European town. The Rhine Gate houses the Museum of Prehistory and Early History. The hostel is located right on the Rhine.
