Schwarzach is one of the largest districts in the Rheinmünster community . Schwarzach is part of the Rastatt district and lies on the Rhine plain.


The Acherner Mühlbach flows through the village .


The district of Schwarzach was strongly influenced by the Benedictine abbey. In the middle of the 13th century a separate parish was established, to which the villages Hildmannsfeld, Greffern, Moos, the hamlet of Kinzhurst and later also Leiberstung belonged. The monastery was inhabited by Benedictine monks until 1803. As part of the secularization , the Margrave of Baden took over the monastery complex with the monastery church, which is why it is now owned by the state of Baden-Württemberg.

On October 1, 1974, Schwarzach merged with three other municipalities to form the new municipality of Rheinmünster.


Schwarzach Minster

The former monastery church is one of the most important Romanesque churches in the Bühl area. It was built between 1150 and 1190. In 1302 the cathedral was rebuilt after a devastating fire. In 1969 the interior of the church was renovated for the first time in order to re-emphasize the Romanesque origins. The vivid monastery garden, which you can visit every day, also belongs to the cathedral.

Other historical buildings

In Schwarzach there are still many buildings and walls that are under monument protection. These include the former monastic office, the Engel Gasthaus and the charnel house, part of the former church courtyard.


Schwarzach was the central station of the Central Baden Railways . Today the SWEG has a locomotive shed and a bus depot.
