Weil am Rhein
Travel Guide

Situated in a romantic location close to France and Switzerland, Weil am Rhein is always worth a city trip to encounter interesting sights.

The district town of Weil am Rhein is located on the sunny Baden wine route in the border triangle of Germany, Switzerland and France. The city is nestled against the foothills of the Black Forest in the east and against the River Rhine in the west. Picturesque grapevine landscapes in a Mediterranean climate dominate the region. The Weiler Weinweg wine trail passes through the city centre to the district of Ötlingen and rewards visitors with romantic vistas into the far Rhine valley.

Two significant churches invite visitors on a city trip interested in culture to Weil am Rhein. The Protestant church Alt-Weil in the district of the same name, east of the city centre, was first mentioned in records in the year 786 and designed in its current appearance in 1791. The interior treasures include an exquisite baptism stone and a masterful Baroque pulpit, both from 1323. The carved cross is also extraordinary. The left foot of crucified Jesus has six toes. And the Georgs Church in the northern district of Haitlingen was mentioned in public records as early as the 12th century and reconstructed several times until the year 1718. The striking tower, the gabled roof and the chapel room of the church are from the Gothic period. Today, concerts take place regularly, drawing sizeable crowds.

One of the oldest buildings in Weil am Rhein is the Stapflehus in Alt-Weil. This former manor house with its staggered pinnacles was built in 16th century and now houses a public gallery as well as a library. The Canadian top architect Frank Gehry planned the Vitra Design Museum to the north of the city centre, one of the most important of its kind in Europe and a much visited sightseeing destination for city travellers from Germany and abroad. The striking white building with its interlaced and intertwined lines resembles a sculpture more than a house. Changing exhibitions and retrospectives of architecture and design with a focus on furnishings and interiors take place regularly. The exhibition furniture comes from one of the most famous industry designers in the world.

The Dreiländebrücke (three-country bridge), built in 2007, is 248 metres long and 26 metre high and a true masterpiece of engineering. This fascinating structure, the longest free-standing pedestrian and bicycle bridge in the world, connects Weil am Rhein to the French village of Huningue. While on a short trip or a mini break in Weil am Rhein, families enjoy visiting the Laguna swimming pool. It offers a wave pool, a white-water ride and a black hole slide as well as a large baby pool for the little guys. Sauna enthusiasts will enjoy the Sauna Parc Vierjahreszeiten (four seasons) immensely. Seven differently tempered saunas offer relaxation and help you to unwind in Weil am Rhein.

Great short-stay hotel.
"Great location on the 3 countries bridge. Just inside Germany so cheaper than Switzerland. Very business-focussed area; not great for additional restaurants and bars but hotel restaurant is great. Fantastic shopping centre next to hotel."
