Cultural asset of regional importance.

On the night of 11 February 1531, the old town hall of Rheinfelden fell victim to a fire. Shortly afterwards, a new building was erected using the medieval tower that had been spared by the fire.

This late Gothic building forms the core of today's town hall.

Coats of arms & rulers' pictures.

The large council chamber was decorated on the northern and southern sides with coats of arms from the Ropsteinwerksatt in Freiburg im Breisgau. These were donated by Austrian sovereigns, friendly forest towns and the county of Hauenstein, as well as by local noblemen who were in the service of the Habsburgs.

10 portraits of princes and 8 of citizens represent personalities from the history of Rheinfelden: Emperor Ferdinand I and Maria Theresa, among others.
