Bad Sackingen is quite small. The Alte Hozbrucke is just 10 15 min away from the train station. It offers a fairly nice view on the Rhein and mountains nearby. A good short walk for families or immobile persons.

Pedestrian bridge across the Rhine, evocative of the past. There is something quite neat in walking across international borders. Worth seeming and experiencing! On the right on the German side there is a fence festooned with the padlocks symbolic of the dreams of lovers which...More
