As with many here, Breisach was our first port on our amazing Viking cruise up the Rhine. This was our first taste of a small town on the Rhine. It was just lovely strolling through the town and taking in the sights. Lots of great photo-taking spots!

After docking, we made our way up the hill to the old town. Very quaint & lovely views over the surrounding countryside.

We stopped here on an Emerald River Cruise. The small town is a lovely place to spend a couple of hours wandering about. Most of the town had to be rebuilt after bombing in the second world war.

Well worth having a stroll around this town. The church on the hill is interesting and was once where a Roman frontier fort was positioned. Much of the town was destroyed in WW2 and has been rebuilt. There are also a couple of town gates to see.

We were on a stop on an Avalon River cruise and decided to skip the cruise excursion and just stay in town. We set our goal as a walk to the Stephanmunster, the church at the top of the hill. It was a beautiful day and the town is lovely to just stroll around. The church is worth a walk... More

Pleasant town on the side of the Rhine. We visited on a Sunady when there was plenty of atmosphere and a huge variety of restaurants. Went on a 2 hour cruise up the canal.Sat on deck with a cold drink was the perfect way to spend a Sunday.

We stopped here on a Viking river cruise. Spent more time than intended because we were forced to miss Basel due to high water (but that's a different review). This little town is pleasant and easily walkable. A local map was available with 3 self-guided walking trails and I did all of them. The Church of St Stephan is the... More

Visited as stop on Viking Rhine Cruise. Easy town to stroll through, even up the hill to St. Stephan's church. Church was open for viewing, no photos allowed, but most of the town's shops were closed on Sunday. Very pretty town

We enjoyed exploring this small Rhine town on foot. There are two well-marked trails through the town with many signs and some beautiful views across the Rhine valley. This small town has an extraordinarily long history as a consequence of its strategic location. Although it was heavily damaged in 1945 (and in 1793), there's still a lot to see. And... More
