Welcome to the "Trompeter von Säckingen" homepage.

Trompeter von Säckingen

Bad Saeckingen at the river Rhine is well known in the world as the "Town of the Trumpeter". The location is the Rhine Valley between the border to Switzerland and the Black Forest. The little town offers a lot of attractions to its visitors: a long and interesting history since the romans, the St.Fridolin-Cathedral and some important sights like the longest covered wooden bridge in Europe.

The present time in Bad Säckingen includes a thermal spa, hospitals and schools as well as opportunities for shopping and spare time in the nature around.

The poet Joseph Victor von Scheffel found the inspiration for his novel "Der Trompeter von Säckingen" in our town.
