Reichenau - confluence of the Rhine rivers

At the confluence of the Hinterrhein and the Vorderrhein, at the birthplace of the Alpine Rhine, is Reichenau. The place was already of great importance in the 14th century, when long-distance traffic over the Graubünden Alpine passes increased and two bridges and a customs house were built. Reichenau is a transport hub, where the routes of the north-south axis separate. Reichenau Castle stands in a spectacular location. Built in the 17th century by the Schauenstein episcopal minister family, it has a long history. The last king of France even lived here once. Today, the historical building belonging to the von Tscharner family is used as a winery.
