Late Roman fort on the Rhine
Breisach is the only town in Baden-Wuerttemberg that was once visited by a Roman Emperor: on 30 August 369 Valentinian I came to Breisach to inspect the border fortresses on the Upper Rhine. He resided with his court in the large administrative building on Cathedral Square which is visible in ground plan again today. The 3rd century hilltop site had a central administrative function and was extended to a strongly fortified fort in the 4th century. The museum of town history features comprehensive exhibitions about the Roman past as well as the Celtic princely seat and the medieval and modern history of the town.
