You can expect a 90-minute guided tour through the old town of Rheinfelden with countless sights, legends and tales for young and old!

Meeting point: Rheinfelden town hall

In the courtyard of the town hall you will meet your guide and start the mystical tour from there.

You will visit: The historic old town.

The tour will take you to the most diverse and sometimes most inconspicuous places of the city. The sights offer a lot of legends and tales that will surprise you!

You will visit: The carillon "Rumpel".

The carillon tells the story of the cunning tailor who once saved the city. The mascot of the story and the town is the goat, the most important character in the carillon. Find out how the town was freed from the Swedes!

You see: St. Martin's Church.

The more than 1000-year-old church in the middle of the old town has a lot to tell. Experience the stylish church and learn about the legends surrounding it.

You see: The Rhine Bridge.

The Rhine Bridge forms the border crossing between the German and the Swiss Rheinfelden. It is very rich in history and was already a landmark of the town in the Middle Ages. Walk across the bridge and let your guide take you into the legends of the bridge.

You see: the St. Anna hole.

Under this bridge is the legendary St. Anne's Hole. It is a fault where the riverbed suddenly drops about 30 meters. This murderous energy creates a whirlpool that has swept many to their deaths. No wonder this hole enjoys countless legends

Practical Information:

  • Group tour
  • The old town is car-free and can be reached in a short time from the parking garages in the area or from the train station

Swiss Activities Tip

The fault of St. Anne's Hole is not visible from the shore. This inconspicuous location makes the hole even more dangerous and at the same time even more mystical. In the Fricktal Museum there is even a video of a breakneck dive to the murderous maelstrom in the middle of the Rhine. Thanks to the St. Anna hole, there are important clues for swimmers in the Rhine
