|Location of the city of Neuenburg on the Rhine in the Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald district|
Neuenburg am Rhein (until 1975 Neuenburg ) is a small town in the Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald district in Baden-Württemberg (Germany). In the High and Late Middle Ages , Neuchâtel was an independent imperial city in the Holy Roman Empire .
Neuchâtel is elevated on the right bank of the Old Rhine on a terrace between the Vosges and the Black Forest , halfway between Freiburg im Breisgau and Basel at the former confluence of the Klemmbach into the Rhine .
Here a path from the Black Forest ( Todtnau ) to Mulhouse (F), today's federal highway 378 , crosses with the old Rhine waterway. In addition, at the time the city was founded by the Zähringers, one of the few fords over the Rhine was located here . The state border between Germany and France lies in the valley path of the Old Rhine. Today the Rhine side canal ( Grand Canal d'Alsace ) runs parallel to the Old Rhine on the French side .
Expansion of the urban area
The urban area runs along the Old Rhine and lies mainly on part of the Rhine plain with the Rhine forest and the low terrace . The district of Steinenstadt also contains an exclave of a vineyard in the foothills between the villages of Auggen and Schliengen . In addition, the city has an oak forest in the Black Forest .
Neighboring communities are in the north Hartheim and Eschbach (Markgräflerland) , in the northeast Heitersheim and Buggingen , in the east Müllheim (Baden) and Auggen , in the southeast Schliengen and in the south Bad Bellingen . To the west of the Rhine, in the Alsace (F) neighborhood, directly opposite the municipality of Chalampé , as well as Ottmarsheim and Bantzenheim .
In addition to the core town of Neuchâtel (with the Wasserbaumeisterei residential area and the Im Stein settlement founded in the 1950s ), the city has three districts: Steinenstadt , Grißheim (with the Rheinwärterhaus residential area) and Zienken . The abandoned village of Rinken is located in the Steinenstadt district .

Until the 19th century
The city was founded in 1175 by Duke Berthold IV of Zähringen in the typical Zähringer construction in the shape of a cross to secure two crossing paths. The reason for the city's foundation were attempts by the Staufer to expand from their Badenweiler property to their properties in neighboring Alsace . The Zähringer secured the Rhine crossing and were able to demand a tribute from the users . However, they died out in 1218.
The Gutnau Monastery was founded in 1181 with the help of a preserved inheritance , according to the information from the Liber Originum of Abbot Caspar Molitoris von Guta, a nun from the Sitzenkirch Monastery . The first monastery building was probably located directly on the Rhine, but was later rebuilt further away from the bank towards Auggen .
1219 Neuenburg am was the Rhine by King Frederick II. To free imperial city explained. This was confirmed in 1274. In the Middle Ages , the city experienced a heyday and gained great political importance due to its location at a Rhine crossing. Between 1272/73 and 1283 Johannes Brunwart was mayor of Neuchâtel. As Brunwart von Ǒghein, he found his way into the great Heidelberg song manuscript of the early 14th century (Codex Manesse, 258v.) With five courtly minneongs that can be conventionally named .
On December 24, 1292, the city received the Adolphine Privilege from King Adolf of Nassau . In 1302 a devastating flood of the Rhine destroyed almost half of the city. In 1311 the city came to the Habsburgs and thus became part of Upper Austria . In 1403 King Ruprecht extended the town charter . In 1525 another flood destroyed half of the city and the formerly magnificent cathedral except for the choir .
The Thirty Years' War took place between 1618 and 1648 . Troops of various origins marched through the city; they and the entire area had to endure various occupations, many looting and destruction. The population loss was very high. In 1675 the Neuchâtel Capuchin Monastery , which had only been built in 1612, was razed by Vauban . During the War of the Spanish Succession , Neuchâtel was also part of the war zone, especially before the Battle of Friedlingen near Basel on October 14, 1702. After two years of French occupation, Neuchâtel was completely destroyed and the population was destroyed on the orders of the French King Louis XIV in April 1704 was accepted in particular on the territory of the Principality of Basel in Schliengen and Steinenstadt. In the following years and decades further wars of succession took place. There were always clashes between Habsburg on the right bank of the Rhine and France on the left bank of the Rhine, with Neuchâtel as a so-called front town, depending on the occupation, often changing rulers.
After Napoléon Bonaparte conquered the areas on the right bank of the Rhine and he reorganized the ownership structure, the Habsburgs lost the areas of Upper Austria . In 1806 the city of Neuchâtel was incorporated into the Grand Duchy of Baden , newly founded in 1806 , which became a federal state of the German Empire in 1871 .
On February 9, 1945, after fighting for the Alsace bridgehead, the last German troops retreated across the Chalampé bridge to Neuchâtel and blew up the bridge at 8 a.m., ending the battle for this bridgehead. In 1962/63 the new construction of a road combined with a single-lane railway bridge over the Rhine, which is now divided into the " Old Rhine " and the Rhine side canal, was completed and inaugurated on August 17, 1963.
In April 1945, after Neuchâtel was conquered by the French army, the Second World War ended. The city became part of the French zone of occupation and part of the state of Baden , which in 1952 merged with Württemberg-Hohenzollern and Württemberg-Baden to form the new state of Baden-Württemberg .
On December 1, 1971, Zienken was incorporated into Neuchâtel. On January 1, 1974, Grissheim was incorporated . The municipality of Steinenstadt was incorporated on January 1, 1975. The city has had the name affix on the Rhine since March 18, 1975.
In Neuchâtel, the municipal council is elected using the spurious selection process . The number of local councils can change due to overhang mandates . The municipality council in Neuchâtel has 24 members after the last election (2009: 25). The local elections on May 25, 2014 led to the following official final result. The municipal council consists of the elected voluntary councilors and the mayor as chairman. The mayor is entitled to vote in the municipal council.

Culture and sights
State Garden Show 2022
The first preparations for hosting the Baden-Württemberg state horticultural show from April to October 2022 with the motto "A city goes to the Rhine - from corrected nature to aqua-urban landscape" have been made since the beginning of 2011, among other things. a. by adapting the relevant zoning plan , also in the course of the urban development project Neuchâtel to the Rhine and the local implementation of the Integrated Rhine Program (IRP) for flood prevention, especially on the lower reaches of the Rhine; In January 2011 the project started for the residents of the city. The first results of the “upheavals” will be visible in spring 2015.
The show will cover a total of around 40 hectares : Wuhrlochpark (6.1 hectares), new Rheinpark (14.2), Rheinauepark (14.6) and in the northern section of the recultivated landfill of the Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald district with seven hectares.
During the preparatory work for the IRP and the associated Rhine gardens project for the state horticultural show, 1.5 tons of remains of munitions had to be removed; the groundbreaking ceremony for the “Rhine gardens” will take place on September 26, 2014 by the Baden-Württemberg Minister of the Environment, Franz Untersteller .
At the annual reception for spooning out the “fool's soup” at the “Schmutzige Dunnschdig” in 2015, the incumbent city mayor Schuster (CDU) presented the mayor of Freiburg to the north , Dieter Salomon ( Bündnis 90 / Die Grünen ) as ambassador for the Neuchâtel project took over the sponsorship specifically for a Norway maple , "This drawing by a fresh bright green, durability and diverse mixability off". Freiburg hosted the State Horticultural Show in 1986. Neuchâtel had previously been able to win over the current Baden-Württemberg Environment Minister Franz Untersteller (also “Greens”) and the former State Parliament President and top candidate for the 2016 state elections, Guido Wolf (CDU), as “LGS 2022 Ambassador” . Other ambassadors of the LGS2022 Neuenburg am Rhein are, for example, the Baden-Württemberg Minister of Agriculture Peter Hauk MdL and the State Secretary in the Ministry for Rural Areas and Consumer Protection Friedlinde Gurr-Hirsch MdL
At the meeting on March 12, 2018, the Neuchâtel municipal council decided on the open space planning of the state horticultural show with the aim of creating permanent green spaces and open spaces for the next 15 to 20 years with regard to the Rhine terraces, Rhine gardens and the Wuhrloch Park as well as the traffic planning.
The annual Nepomuk Festival is considered to be the oldest street festival in Baden-Württemberg. It always takes place on the second weekend in July of the year. It traditionally starts Friday at 5 p.m. and ends on Monday with a large fireworks display.
In the town hall on Franziskanerplatz, built in 1828 above the old town wall and the former town moat, the Museum of Town History has been located since 1988 with its town history collection. The classicist building is one of the few buildings in Neuchâtel that survived the Second World War. The museum tries to present the early history in the Neuchâtel area. At the same time, it documents the history of the city from the earliest documented mention to the transition to the Grand Duchy of Baden in 1806. In addition, the collection shows the importance of the Rhine for the city, including the Rhine regulation by Tulla and its consequences. Another focus is the documentation of the city before the destruction in World War II.
The Wuhrlochpark is a local recreation area in the city. Here at the Wuhrloch , into which the Klemmbach flows, you will find a leisure sports center, a mini golf course and the city library . The Wuhrloch was created as a scour during a Rhine flood in 1876; In 1908 a depth of 18 meters was measured.
From 1940 onwards , citizens who had become homeless during the Second World War were housed here in a barracks settlement . The then Gauleiter and Reich Governor Robert Wagner opened it on September 15, 1940 at a large-scale rally of the NSDAP . The last of these barracks were demolished at the end of the 1960s; at the same time, a new district was built in the neighboring so-called Mühleköpfle in the lowlands bordering the city, partly in self-help .
The population of the city of Neuchâtel on the Rhine used to be predominantly Catholic as part of Upper Austria, but the ratio of numbers to members of the Protestant faith has now balanced out.
Church of the Redeemer
Five years after Martin Luther's 95 theses were posted on the Wittenberg town church, the city council decided to appoint the preacher of the New Doctrine, Otto Brunfels, to Neuchâtel, but in 1524 he had to leave the town at the request of the representatives of the Austrian towns of Breisach, Endingen and Waldkirch and leave Freiburg again. Before the First World War , Neuchâtel had only a few Protestant inhabitants, in 1929/1930 only 150. In 1927, the Evangelical High Church Council transferred 2000 Reichsmarks to the community as a grant for the construction of a local Protestant church; In 1927 a building plot was acquired. In 1929 the foundation stone for the construction of the church was laid based on a design by the Freiburg architect Wildmann ; for the artistic design of the out was Triberg native Karl Josef Fortwängler been commissioned. The building was inaugurated on June 14, 1930 and handed over to its intended use. It was one of the few structures in Neuchâtel to survive the firestorm after the bombing in World War II on July 11, 1940.
Catholic Church of Our Lady
There were several predecessor churches at the location of today's Catholic Church of Our Lady. The first surviving building is a Franciscan monastery church of the Barfüßer from the 13th century. Except for the choir, it was destroyed in the Dutch War (1675) . Four years later, a makeshift tent was attached to the choir, which was replaced by an emergency building in 1699. In 1704 the church was completely destroyed in the War of the Spanish Succession . From 1725 to 1727, builder Simon Hüttle built a new church, the choir of which was renovated from 1886 to 1890. Glass windows were created by Rudolf and Otto Linnemann from Frankfurt in 1903, documents on this are in the Linnemann archive. The tower remained and was raised. During the Second World War, the church burned down completely in 1940 and had to be blown up. Today's building was based on a design by Freiburg architect Gregor Schroeder from 1953. The first service took place here on November 22, 1953.
Economy and Infrastructure
The Neuchâtel industry, its trade and commerce are employers for around 4,000 people. The largest resident companies include Vibracoustic , Losan, K & U Bäckerei , Rexam , Contura ( Vitra ), Rheinmetall and Romaco.
Former Rhine port
Before the correction of the Rhine under Tulla, there was a small port in Neuchâtel ; the remains of an associated crane runway were uncovered at the end of 2013 in the course of preparatory work for the local implementation of the integrated Rhine program (IRP) and the State Garden Show 2022 taking place in this area and later canceled.
Railway / public transport
Neuchâtel is on the single- track Müllheim – Mulhouse line .
The Neuenburg – Chalampé railway bridge across the Rhine was inaugurated on February 5, 1878. On October 7, 1939, just five weeks after Germany instigated World War II, it was blown up by French troops, as was the ship bridge built in 1872/73. After the transfer of German troops to French territory, reconstruction began immediately in mid-June 1940. First the bed of the Rhine was cleared, the biggest obstacle being the rubble of the destroyed bridge. Part of the bridge, which lay completely in the river bed, was dredged, dismantled by diving forces, lifted with a lifting ship and salvaged on land. The remaining parts of the bridge were used in the reconstruction of the railway bridge. On August 15, 1941, the railway bridge was opened to traffic again. As a replacement for the destroyed ship bridge, a makeshift bridge was built by pioneers, the "Schwabenbrücke". It was demolished after the withdrawal of the German troops and replaced by a pontoon bridge. From November 1944 to February 1945 the railway bridge was constantly under enemy fire. In mid-December, two American bomber units attacked with 32 aircraft each, and another larger task force in January 1945. The bombs dropped mostly landed in the Rhine, one hit one near Neuchâtel Gun post lying on the Rhine harbor. In April 2020, an aerial bomb found during explorations for the State Garden Show 2022 had to be defused and disposed of. Finally, on February 9, 1945, the bridge was blown up again by remaining German troops in accordance with a Führer order .
Passenger traffic on the bridge, which was rebuilt after the war, ceased in the mid-1970s. In addition to pilgrimages to Lourdes and freight trains, only the so-called event traffic operated on the route to Mulhouse in France until 2012 : This project, started in summer 2006, linked the cities of Müllheim, Neuchâtel am Rhein and Mulhouse in Alsace. Since December 9, 2012 there have been up to seven connections a day, with at least one pair of trains going directly to Freiburg (Breisgau) Hbf . French X73900 are used .
Since the start of the winter timetable on 14 December 2009 run regional trains the relation Freiburg Müllheim further to Neuchatel and so bind to the city by a rail-based DB network. A two-hour cycle was implemented both Monday to Friday (with individual cycle gaps) and on weekends.
Since August 2013, a pair of TGV trains has been running from Freiburg via the route to Paris . After the completion of the third and fourth tracks of the Rheintalbahn , an hourly S-Bahn service from Mulhouse to Freiburg would be possible.
Together with SWEG, the city operates its own city bus system within the entire area and to the Müllheim train station . This created a synchronized connection to the express train services from Freiburg and Basel. The city is connected to the supra-regional public transport system with other bus lines and is part of the Freiburg Regional Transport Association (RVF).
The federal motorway 5 ( Niederaula - Weil am Rhein ) between the city and the Old Rhine is used by around 50,000 vehicles every day at the Neuchâtel height. To the south of Neuchâtel, approx. 14,000 cars coming from France cross the Rhine every day; They are led via the Ottmarsheim motorway toll and the Ottmarsheim Rhine bridge to the Neuenburg motorway triangle on the A 5.
The federal highway 378 connects the federal highway 3 , located in the neighboring town of Müllheim to the east , with Neuchâtel and the A5.
When it comes to education, the city of Neuchâtel takes a holistic approach to learning foreign languages. Due to the proximity to France, the focus is on Franco- German offers. French classes range from kindergarten through elementary and secondary schools to adult education. There is a Franco-German kindergarten and a cross-border adult education center.
The Zähringer primary, secondary and Werkrealschule had been in which the French classes tested with elementary school students before the introduction of French as a first foreign language from the first grade, a pilot school. French is also the first foreign language at Mathias-von-Neuenburg-Realschule , but in future pupils will learn two foreign languages, English and French, from the fifth grade onwards. The school is currently developing a trinational certificate for secondary school leaving certificate as part of an Interreg project , which is also to be recognized in France and Switzerland. In 2005 the new three-class district high school in Neuenburg am Rhein went into operation. This school has been in three classes since 2006, and it also houses two fourth classes of the Zähringen elementary school. The two foreign languages French and English are already available in 5th grade, while Spanish is also possible as a third foreign language when choosing a profile.
