In the north of the Kaiserstuhl, Amoltern, a small winegrowing village, is situated in a side valley and offers wonderful panoramic views. The surroundings of the village is marked by viticulture and fruit growing. Amoltern got its name from the wild cherry, from the Amarelle cherry. It was mentioned in a document for the first time in 1100.
The “Amolterer Heide” is one of the oldest natural reserves on the Kaiserstuhl. Many kinds of orchids are growing there. Following the “Amolterer Kräuterpfad” (an educational circular trail about herbs) the hiker learns many interesting facts about wild herbs. The Landfrauenverein (rural women’s association) offers diverse guided tours and varied events.


Lovers of Kiechlinsbergen say that it would be the most beautiful situated village on the Kaiserstuhl. Surprisingly is the number of historical monuments.
In 862 A.C. a tithe courtyard existed in Kiechlinsbergen. At a later point of time it belonged to the Tennenbach Abbey and was a “Fronhof” were people had to give away their tithe in wine since 1524. In 1730 the building master Peter Thumb (he was the building master of the pilgrimage church in Birnau on the Lake of Constance, too) started constructing the castle in form of the Tennenbacher provostship. Next to the church the probably oldest, but kept fully intact Franconian estate dated 1544. The restaurant “Zur Stube” and further half-timbered buildings give the village a romantic aura.
Interesting facts about the history of the village can be learnt in the local history museum. Following the wine trail or one of the themed paths the tourist gets to know many things about the local nature and culture. Every year in September the street festival and the Zwiebelkuchenfest (here you can taste a local delicacy: onion tarte) are very popular and well attended.


In 995 the winegrowing village was mentioned in a document of the Habsburg family for the first time.
After the Reformation the village was passed over to Markgraves of Baden. The arches at the courtyard entrances made of sandstone are characteristic for the village as well as the well preserved half-timbered houses.
In a document of 1363 you can already read some references to the “noble wine” being produced in Königschaffhausen. Yearly in April you can experience the tree blossom which is very particular in this area, because thousands of trees are dressed in white in these days.
The cultural associations offer a wide range of events. The cherry festival (Kirschenfest) with the election of the “Miss of the cherries” (Kirschenkönigin) and the wine festival in autumn at the end of the grape gatherings are the highlights of the year. Visiting the Cherry Museum (Kirschenmuseum) and walking on the educational fruit and wine-lovers’ trail the tourist learns many interesting facts.
