Breisach is situated along the Rhine in the Rhine Valley, in the district Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald, Baden-Württemberg, Germany, about halfway between Freiburg and Colmar — 20 kilometres away from each — and about 60 kilometres north of Basel near the Kaiserstuhl. A bridge leads over the Rhine to Neuf-Brisach, Alsace.
The St. Stephan's cathedral of Breisach is a must see in Breisach. It is situated on top of the cathedral hill overlooking the houses of the old town and the Rhine lowlands. Its two towers guide the visitor the way to an interesting building, which displays numerous treasures and outstanding artworks. Roman and gothic elements can be found in the cathedral, which was built from the end of the 12th century to the end of the 15th century.
