Rheinfelden is a municipality in the canton of Aargau in Switzerland, seat of the district of Rheinfelden. It is located 15 kilometres east of Basel. The name means the fields of the Rhine, as the town is located on the Hochrhein. It is home to Feldschlösschen, the most popular beer in Switzerland. The city is across the river from Rheinfelden in Baden-Württemberg; the two cities were joined until Napoleon Bonaparte fixed the German–Swiss border on the Rhine in 1802 and are still socially and economically tied.GeographyThe old town of Rheinfelden lies on the left bank of the Rhine, where the river is divided into two arms by the "Inseli", a roughly 150m long island. Downstream of the Inseli and the Rheinbrücke, the river bottoms drops to about 30m deep, creating a huge and deadly vortex, known as the St-Anna-Loch. Nearly 400m east is the Magdenerbach''.The wooded, gently-rising foothills of the Tafeljura lie south of the town. These are the Steppberg (395mabove sea level) and the "Berg" (427m), both in the south-east. Between these two hills lie the deeply incised valleys of the Magdenerbach.Make Rheinfelden central to your Germany travel plans using our Germany online road trip planner.
