2 days in Rheinfelden
2 days in Rheinfelden - there is so much to discover. Inspiration for two unforgettable days with activities, accommodation and restaurant tips.
1. arrival by boat from Basel.
The most spectacular arrival to Rheinfelden is by ship. Arrive by ship at 11am from Basel and enjoy the magnificent river scenery and a delicious lunch on board.
3. shopping spree in the old town
Stroll through the old town and visit the numerous, mostly owner-operated boutiques. Surprise those at home with a gift from Rheinfelden or buy yourself a souvenir.
4. enjoy a meal on the Rhine terrace.
Whether over a cocktail or a dignified meal - on a terrace directly on the Rhine, you can let your gaze wander and enjoy the soothing sound of the river. And on balmy summer evenings, enjoy the magnificent sunset.
5. overnight stay in hotel, hostel or BnB.
After such an eventful day, nice hosts and a comfortable bed are just what you need to relax. Choose from 3- and 4-star hotels, a small but nice hostel or stay with local hosts in a vacation apartment or guest room.
6. first of all: breakfast...
The second day starts with a good breakfast. Kafi and croissants or rather a large breakfast buffet? In these hotels and restaurants you start the eventful day strengthened.
7. take a hike along the Rhine bank circular trail.
Immerse yourself in the diverse natural landscape of the Rhine and hike along the popular circular trail, also called the "Schwobe-Rundi" by the locals. Along the cross-border circular trail, information boards point out the exciting history of the two Rheinfeld sister towns.
8. a little refreshment
A 3-course lunch menu, a small snack or something "over the counter" - in Rheinfeld's Old Town there are numerous restaurants, food trucks, market stalls and take-aways to satisfy small and large appetites.
Or would you like to enjoy a homemade picnic at the place of your choice? Then book the Rheinfelden picnic in summer.
9. experience beer, salt, shrimps or Roman times.
Immerse yourself in the world of beer and visit the Feldschlösschen Brewery World. Or are you more interested in the mining of salt? Two of only three mining sites in Switzerland are located in the Rheinfelden region. The salt and waste heat from the Swiss salt works in Riburg are used to raise the Rheinfelden SwissShrimp - visit the shrimp farm.
Would you rather travel back in time? Then visit the Roman city of Augusta Raurica.
Bad weather alternatives: A warm bath in the Rheinfelder Natursole®.
The Rheinfelder Natursole® is unique and not only beneficial to health, but also very relaxing. Visit one of the two brine baths and recover body, mind and soul from your eventful stay in Rheinfelden.
