Christmas markets: Small but nice.

Rheinfelden does not have a large, classic Christmas market - but it does have some small but fine Advent markets.

Handmade, sustainable and individual - this is the focus of the Furnierwerk Adventmarkt. Around twenty local traders will be selling their products, from food to decorations, art and accessories, on 4 & 5 December. 

From 16 - 19 December, the area around the «Brauwelt» will be transformed into the «Feldschlösschen Winterdorf»Salt products, woodwork, beer-related gift ideas, but also ice curling, mulled beer and Schüblig await visitors.

Phénomena, mechanical work of art.

The spectacular work by artist Charles Morgan for Oris shows that watchmaking can not only be serious, but also cheerful. Today, everything mechanical is hidden. Charles Morgen, however, puts them first. The «Phénomena» is thus a symbol of the joy of mechanics. From 26 November 2021 to 9 January 2022, this mechanical poetry will be on display at Salmenpark.


Advent windows Rheinfelden.

It is hard to imagine Rheinfelden without the tradition of the artistically decorated Advent windows. For many years, volunteers have been decorating their windows with a great deal of creativity and joy and in this way helping to cast a magical Christmas spell over Rheinfelden.
