Weil am Rhein may only be a small city, but it has a big appetite for architecture, culture, and outdoor pursuits to tempt even the most passive travellers. Inspirational furniture designers Vitra actively promote the arts, and a design museum is filled with exhibits by world-famous names, some of which are controversial. It’s an art thing! Visitors should also check out the Stapflehuus; the small historical museum has a certain charm. On the banks of the Rhine and the side entrance to the Black Forest, Weil am Rhein has an enviable location. Visitors shouldn’t pass up the opportunity to explore the narrow lanes through the vineyards and rolling hills, where you have the opportunity to find peace in the great outdoors and a chance to sample the delicious wines–a tradition the city is so proud of a bunch of grapes adorns their coat of arms.

Location: On the borders

Nestled in the far south-west corner of Germany, Weil am Rhein is on a triumvirate of borders, the neighbouring countries being France and Switzerland. Basel, Switzerland’s third most populous city, is only a short distance, and Strasbourg in France is not much further.

Business: International opportunities

The Weil am Rhein Wirtschaft & Tourismus (WWT, Association for Economy & Tourism) has a unique proposition for visiting business travellers to help mediate business contacts and organize essential services. The idea of communication and public relations was perhaps inspired by the city’s leading light, the modern furniture designer Vitra, who have their headquarters here. The globally recognised company has added a design museum to its premises, and invites internationally recognised artists to exhibit their work here. Even for non-business travellers, a visit to the museum is well worth the trip.

Culture: Wine and design

Weil am Rhein is well known for its production of wine, a tradition they are extremely proud of. Take a trip to one of the many vineyards in the region to sample the latest flavours and vintage favourites, or simply admire the scenery with a cycle through the vineyards. If you do get out and about on your bike, sample some local culture in nearby Oetlingen, where you will find the Café Inka, a converted farmhouse that whips up traditional recipes of the region, such as sausage and trout–although the real treats are the desserts, which include the world-famous Black Forest Gateau.

Activities: Splash and slide

If you are visiting Weil am Rhein with your family, head to Laguna Land, a fun-filled water park with slides, saunas, wave machines, and adventure pools–and after all that activity, a much-needed champagne bubble bed. Alternatively join the toddlers in the splash pool. If you are visiting in late March, check out the dates of the Burefasnet festival, the peasant carnival that still holds on the ancient traditions when the church did not include Sunday as one of the 40 days of lent.
