The whole area of Baden is known for tasty cuisine. Rust is not large; hotels in and around the Europapark, restaurants in the 10 km around, places like Nieder- and Oberhausen, Rheinhausen to Herbolzheim are looking forward to and warmly welcome visitors. When you are in town, don’t hesitate to chat up townsfolk and ask them for help. We live in a wine-growing area where people are friendly and not jaded urbanites.

"We are among two of our party to europapark for a day and the rest of us would like to visit a castle instead. Can you recommend somewhere within an hour's drive? Many thanks! Linda" (posted 05/24/2015)

You can visit the castle Ortenberg. In the castle there is a youth hostel and a well-known winery. Alternatively, the Hochkönigsburg in Alsace / France.

Hey, the answer is: The Hochkönigsburg in Elsas, to former German times a Kaiserburg. A wonderful view over the whole valley of the Rhine. The Hochkönigsburg now belongs to France and is completely preserved. It is very easy to reach by car and by bus! Sincerely Reinhard Burghardt

  • Europa-Park
    [ source: Wikipedia ]


    Europa-Park is the largest theme park in Germany and a second most popular theme park resort in Europe. Having 4.5 million visitors in 2011, it is the most popular seasonal theme park in the world and the second most visited theme park in Europe after Disneyland Paris. Europa-Park is located in Rust, in the south-west of Germany between Freiburg and Strasbourg, France. It is usually open from just before Easter until the beginning of November (summer season) and from the end of November to the second week in January (winter season).

    The park is split into sixteen different areas, mostly named after European countries or regions. The park mascot is a grey mouse named "Euromaus" although there are over a dozen other characters[specify] that "live" at the park.

    Europa-Park is run by the Mack family which have produced vehicles since 1780, circus wagons since 1880 and rollercoasters since 1921. The park was opened in 1975 to act as a showcase for many of their different ride models – for example, the Wild Mouse roller coaster. The amusement ride company is now called Mack Rides. This explains why the park has two of their water coaster models (one a Super Splash model) and is home to the one-of-a-kind Euro-Mir (although Mack do now produce an updated, more compact version of their spinning coaster). One of the few rides that goes against this rule is the Silver Star hyper coaster, designed by B&M of Switzerland. This is presumably because Mack doesn't yet offer a hyper coaster model, although they are now developing taller and faster rollercoasters.
