Located in the midst of a sun-drenched landscape of orchards and vineyards, the wine town of Oberkirch forms the gateway to the Rench valley on the Baden Wine Route. The historic old town, with its picturesque half-timbered houses, cozy cafés and shops, entices visitors for a stroll – and a cup of coffee with a slice of the famous Black Forest cake.
There is a lot to discover in Oberkirch: the ruins of the “Schauenburg” castle with its stunning views over the town and the Upper Rhine Valley, the certified hiking tour “Oberkircher Brennersteig” with its highlights, the Geigerkopf viewing tower and schnapps (liqueur) tasting.
Wine-lovers shouldn’t miss the chance to taste the exceptional wines from the local winemakers – a guided tour through the vineyards and wineries, followed by a traditional Baden vesper (snack), will make this experience even more unique. The local cuisine deserves special attention and is considered one of the best regional cuisines in Germany.
Yet another highlight for the visitors is the “wine hiking tour” of Oberkirch (Oberkircher Weinwanderung), which combines a hike through the marvellous vineyard landscapes and a 5-course meal with corresponding wines along the way.
Oberkirch holds a great array of exciting events all year round: from the popular strawberry and wine festivals to numerous concerts, exhibitions and theatre performances.
So one thing is for sure – it won’t be boring! We are looking forward to welcoming you in Oberkirch.
