Shopping with a baroque backdrop
The Capuchin Monastery, completed in 1647 and the only building which survived the city fire in 1689, is the oldest building in the city. Also worth a visit are the
barock town hall, which dates back to 1741 and the neighbouring royal court. In the historic centre of Offenburg, over 500 shops are squeezed into narrow alleyways and offer a good opportunity for shopping. Visitors can sample and buy wine from the regional winemakers in the traditional wine taverns.
