By the riverbank on the northern edge of the town, an archaeologist came to expose a public Roman bath in 1974/75. In 1962, the silver treasure of of Kaiseraugst was discovered by the fort in the course of construction works. It consists of ornated tiles, drinking vessels, silverware and 186 silver coins and medallions. From here, Basel is not far.

Condition of cycle paths
You cycle on the signposted Southern Black Forest cycle path on mostly quiet country roads and traffic-free cycle paths. The route is only partially on roads with moderate traffic and unpaved roads. The route tends to run downhill; with one or the other ascent in the Black Forest to be mastered. A basic level of fitness is therefore recommended. We recommend the most difficult point from Kirchzarten to Hinterzarten due to the many meters of altitude to be covered by train.
