Rheinfelden is well known for its historic spa town status and traditional commercial sectors, like salt mining and brewery.
The international flair has been created in recent years by the newly arrived pharmaceuticals, machine construction and electricity companies. In the vicinity there are also several universities and research centers.
Moreover Rheinfelden is economically closely linked to the neighboring German city and benefits from its proximity to the two cities of Basel and Zurich.
Centrally located on the banks of the Rhine:
A 10 minutes’ walk takes you to the train station and within 5 minutes you reach the historical old town. 17 km down the Rhine is the city of Basel and after three minutes’ car drive you reach the motorway.
Our own bus stop with the lines 84 and 85 takes passengers to the Rheinfelden train station in just under five minutes. It takes less than half an hour’s drive to the Euro Airport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg with its international connections.
In 1884 the brewery which produced the Salmenbräu, was relocated to today’s Salmenpark site. In 1971 Salmenbräu joined Sibraholding AG as a founding partner. Henceforth Salmenbräu was named “Cardinal”. The 118-year-old beer tradition of the site “Salmenpark” ended in 2002 with the transfer of production to the Feldschlösschen brewery.
The architects of the Atelier ww created in the interior area a tension between hard and soft edges, rooms that narrow and expand again elsewhere. In addition, they are planned according to Minergie® standard with controlled domestic ventilation. The exterior space is a skillful interaction of civic components and green elements of riverbank vegetation. This creates an urban recreation and meeting area. Numerous traffic-free areas invite to linger.
