Our hike through the Rheinauen begins in Sasbach. The wine-growing community of Sasbach on the edge of the Kaiserstuhl is located in the Upper Rhine Valley between the Black Forest and the Vosges mountains. The settlement history of Sasbach goes back to Roman times, when a fort was built on the nearby Limberg. Our meeting point is the car park at the “Rheinauen elementary school” in Sasbach.
The hike runs at ground level through the old Rhine meadows from Sasbach to Breisach. The Rheinauen are a unique nature reserve with easily walkable forest paths and rich flora and fauna. The route leads past the old Sponeck Castle and the ruins of the Schwendihaus in the picturesque wine village of Burkheim. Your guide will take you on a short tour through the village. You will also have the opportunity to visit the “Burkheimer Kräuterhof” and stock up on fine herbs and teas.
The hike continues through the Rheinauen and along the Rhine to Breisach. On this section your hiking guide will inform you about flora & fauna and the straightening of the Rhine. Favored by the Mediterranean climate, here in the sunniest area of the Kaiserstuhl you will find a unique and lush fauna and flora, which is also often referred to as ‘Germany’s Tuscany’.
From a great distance you will see the Breisacher Münster from the inner dike. The Minster towers proudly a little over 40 meters above the Rhine plain on Münsterberg. With your tour guide you will climb the Münsterberg, where your hiking guide will take you on a tour of the old town. Your hike ends at market square.
