Breisach - Germany

Breisach is in south-western Germany, on the right bank of the Rhine opposite Neuf-Brisach (France). The 11th century Romanesque-Gothic Cathedral of St. Stephan has a Renaissance pulpit, silver shrine, high altar of carved wood and a terrace with great views across the Rhine into France. In the time of Julius Caesar, it became known as Mons Brisiacus. It was made an imperial city in 1275 and held by the Hasburgs after 1331. It fell to the Protestants in the Thirty Years' War (1638), to the French in 1648, and was restored to Austria in 1697. There are more than 30 cruises calling at this port.
