Discover Offenburg. Take the baroque facades along the high street, for example. The former Königshof was built between 1714 an 1717, and housed the offices of Ortenau district governors. Today it serves as Offenburg police headquarters. At that time, Offenburg belonged to Near Austria. It was the Napoleonic wars that finally brought the influence of the Habsburgs to an end. In 1803, Offenburg joined the Grand Duchy of Baden. Almost fifty years later, in 1848/49, it was at the centre of the Baden revolution. Traces of the Habsburgs can still be found on the town hall built in 1741, which boasts a proud Austrian double eagle on an impressive facade.
