    Former railway through town

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the Hauptstrasse by the bus station near the police station you will find a short stretch of tracks. These reminds us of the narrow gauge railway that run from 1898 until 1957 from Offenburg to Altenheim. The railway was called "Entenkoepfer" which means duck beheader. Obviously the local ducks had a dangerous life back then.

    The Dreifaltigkeitskirche (Trinity Church) can be seen from quite a distance due to its size. It was built from 1906-8 in Romanesque basilica style.

    Even though the church isn't very old, it's still worth going inside for a look.

    Adress:
    Friedrichstrasse 23a
