This is by far the most beautiful building on the main street of Gengenbach. The museum opposite the town hall frames the central square perfectly. There are benches here to admire the fountain and the town hall building.

Beautiful German place closed to Freiburg. I suggest to stay, at least, one night in the city and enjoy.

Wonderful town to stroll through, have lunch, shop and enjoy the lovely architecture. There is also a market in front of the town hall 2 days a week. A nice town to stop in when in the area.
