Gengenbach – “A pearl among the towns with framework houses“ were the words once used on television when referring to our romantic town. Visitors from all over the world simply rave about “Baden’s little French Nice!“

As soon as you see the town’s towers and gates, you will want to discover Gengenbach’s historic centre, with its picturesque streets and lovely narrow alleys. You will feel as if you were in the middle of a fairy tale!


The statue of the knight, the fountain and the 200-year-old town hall on the Market Square are all witnesses of days also to be proud of, earlier days when Gengenbach was a “Free Imperial City“.
