Ringsheim

Rings­heim is a small muni­ci­pa­li­ty in the South-Baden regi­on, loca­ted in the Upper Rhi­ne Val­ley and in the foot­hill area of the Black Forest. Cel­tic peop­le and Romans had alrea­dy mined iron ores on the Kah­len­berg. The late Baro­que parish church of Saint John the Bap­tist and Baro­que houses are Ringsheim’s eye­cat­chers. A cha­pel dedi­ca­ted to Saint John is a real archi­tec­tu­ral gem with its Gothic cross of the 17th cen­tu­ry. The viti­cul­tu­re and the tob­ac­co cul­ti­va­ti­on play an eco­no­mi­c­al­ly important role in Rings­heim. Two lar­ge dry­ing barns for tob­ac­co, being under monu­men­tal pro­tec­tion, are evi­den­ces for the impor­t­an­ce of the tob­ac­co cul­ti­va­ti­on in this regi­on. At the last wee­kend of August, the wine and street fes­ti­val is the high­light event of the year.
