Hebelstraße / Schlossplatz
From here you have the best view of the margrave castle in which the city’s History Museum and the Hirsmüller Photography Museum are to be found. There is also a cultural stage in the castle’s cellar underneath the museum.
Records of the history of the building have been kept since 1230. The castle was acquired by Margrave Jacob III of Baden-Hachberg and converted into a residential castle. Jacob’s death would make a good crime thriller: he seems to have died from arsenic poison.
The catholic church St Bonifatius here in the Hebel Street contains a significant late medieval painting in its side chapel: the magnificent winged altar was attributed to Master Friedrich Herlin in 1473.
