In the south of Baden, right on the border with Switzerland
and France, lies the trumpeter town Bad Säckingen.
The poet Joseph Victor von Scheffel
once made the tranquil city famous when he published his verse epic
“The Trumpeter of Säckingen”.
It became a world bestseller, which even became a feature film
and an opera. Even today the figure of
the trumpeter is THE symbol of the city. You can find her
together with the tomcat Hiddigeigei in the romantic
and atmospheric old town. The
lovers who are
sung about in Scheffel's epic once strolled in today's palace gardens . Today you can
still find Schönau Palace, which houses the Upper Rhine
Stroll on the Rhine promenade and leave
The view of the mighty Rhine, the St. Fridolinsmünster
and the longest covered wooden bridge in
Europe will impress you. Immerse
yourself in the thermal baths and leave everyday life behind you, enjoy
a walk around the mountain lake or
musical performed exclusively in Bad Säckingen . Start on day trips to
Switzerland, France or the nearby
southern Black Forest. Take your bike
or Nordic walking sticks
and go out
into nature. The possibilities are numerous, the
places as multifaceted as they are symbolic for life
here on the Upper Rhine, in Bad Säckingen.
We wish you on the journey of discovery
through our city a lot of fun, exciting impressions
and varied moments. We are
sure they will be numerous.
