Just by Basel, at the start of the navigable Rhine, lies the charming little "Zähringer" town of Rheinfelden. The historic town centre with its typical wide market street and delightful side lanes is an inviting area in which to wander, explore and do some shopping.
In 1846, when the salt baths opened in Rheinfelden, the little town enjoyed international fame. In 2016 the whole border town of Rheinfelden (Canton Aargau) was delighted to receive the Wakker Prize. Today, with its health centre, the "sole uno" World of Well-being and the Park-Hotel am Rhein, Rheinfelden is a well-known centre for Health & Well-being.
Because Rheinfelden is easily accessible by public transport or car and is of a manageable size, it is the ideal location for Courses & Conferences. The Schützen and Schiff conference hotels, the Hotel Ochsen, the Hotel Eden, the Casino Rooms and Station Rooms are up-to-date venues, catering for events for 5 to 650 participants.
As for Excursions & Group Visits, the company Feldschlösschen Getränke AG invites you to experience the world of brewing, and a visit to the A. Wuhrmann & Cie. AG cigar factory will show how fine cigars are hand-crafted, while the Rheinfeld Ceramics company reveals how its world -famous creations are made. The Roman town and museum Augusta Raurica in Augst, the oldest romain colony at the Rhine and the salt-works Riburg in Möhlin are further attractive places worth visiting near Rheinfelden. Combine this with a guided tour of the town or a boat-trip on the Rhine and you will experience an unforgettable company or works outing.
The Rehaklinik Rheinfelden (rehabilitation centre), the Schützen Clinic and the SALINA private clinic make Rheinfelden a significant place for Rehabilitation in Switzerland.
