Picturesque Laufenburg is anything but usual.
The magic of labyrinthine, cobblestone alleyways, gates, towers presiding over small squares, fountains, and fortress ruins rising over the closely packed mansions and historic homes of the Old Town – this is the picturesque border town of Laufenburg, dubbed the “Pearl on the Upper Rhine.” Hardly any other town along the Upper Rhine has been depicted by famous artists as often as Laufenburg, which was separated between Germany and Switzerland on either side of the Rhine by Napoleon. Here, one can experience and take pleasure in history, nature, and culture all at once.
