The Middle Ages.

Hard work & rays of hope.

The city guides take you on a journey into the dark times. The life of the common people in Rheinfelden was marked by work and fear. The influence of the church increased steadily and a monastery was also built in Rheinfelden. But there are also positive and funny stories to tell about those times: for example, there is still an outhouse in Rheinfelden today.
