Rheinfelden means the fields of the Rhine, as the town is located on the Hochrhein. It is home to Feldschlösschen, Switzerland’s most popular beer. 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.

In 1846, when the salt baths opened in Rheinfelden, the little town enjoyed international fame. Today, Rheinfelden is known as a centre for health and wellness with the Sole Uno health centre and Park-Hotel am Rhein.

It is a beautiful old city still with many of its original buildings and features. It has parks and playgrounds, some lovely cafes set on the Rhein for the daytime and restaurants for the evening, making it a great place for a day out or an overnight stay.
