Brauerei Feldschlösschen Rheinfelden mit Getreidefeld

Beer town Rheinfelden.

The Salmen brewery was founded in 1799 on Marktgasse by Franz Josef Dietschy from Pfaffenberg, Germany. The Salmenweiher pond was used by the Salmen brewery as an ice pond until around 1900. Today, the pond is maintained by the town's fishing guild. The Weiherfeldwald forest is a nature reserve. It is left in its original state as a floodplain forest without any maintenance measures.

From the Friedensweg you have a beautiful view over the Rhine to the southern Baden areas (Dinkelberg, Hotzenwald). The Feldschlösschen brewery was founded in 1876 by Theophil Roniger and Matthias Wüthrich.
