Undiscovered - Hidden Stories in the Church of St. Martin

Experience stories in the town church. Take a look behind the choir stalls and altars. Astonishment is guaranteed!


Secular things within consecrated walls.

You will be surprised how many "aha-experiences" this 1000-year-old church has to offer. You will feel a shiver when you come face to face with contemporary witnesses of the plague epidemics. You will also learn how much of today's everyday language originated in medieval churches. With its age, the St. Martin's Church has already experienced a lot. It has been continuously rebuilt, renewed and improved. Therefore, many different architectural styles and art forms are recognizable.

A rarity: the Rheinfelden Lenten Cloth.

And if you plan your visit during Lent (between Carneval and Easter), you will discover something extremely rare: one of two hunger or fasting cloths still actively used in Switzerland. It hangs above the main picture of the high altar and can only be seen up close during church tours.
