Badly destroyed by the French during the 30 year’s war, Gengenbach was rebuilt to its glory. The city attracts visitors thanks to its charming medieval vibe. Parts of the medieval fortification wall and towers can still be seen today. The visible cellars in the old half-timbered houses remind us of the history of the wine in the region. A visit to the Raftsman Museum will present you with the importance of the timber in the region, while the wooden masks of the Fool’s Museum will introduce you to the traditions and characters of the local Carnival. Hiking up the Bergle Hill will award you with a magnificent view over the vineyards and the town. During the Xmas time, the Town Hall becomes the largest advent calendar in the world!
