Markgräflerland

Markgräflerland is a region in the southwest of Germany, in the south of the German federal state of Baden-Württemberg, located between the Breisgau in the north and the Black Forest in the east. The name translates in reference to the Margraves of Baden, they ruled the area from the 12th century as a margraviate of the Holy Roman Empire until its elevation to the Grand Duchy of Baden in 1806, following the Empire's dissolution. Markgräflerland is the combination of three lordships: Rötteln and Sausenburg. In 1556 the Markgraf became Protestant following the actions of the German monk Martin Luther; the river Rhine marks the frontier to Switzerland in the south. Markgräflerland is considered to be part of the transnational metropolitan area that includes Freiburg and Mulhouse; this region of Germany called the Dreiländereck, includes many towns, but it is accepted that the center of the region is the town of Müllheim. The region was a bit smaller, only reaching to Heitersheim in the north; the largest mountain in the region, the Blauen, lies on the outside border.

The region is known for its vineyards. A unique grape variety is the Gutedel grape known as Chasselas, which made its way into the region in 1780 from Vevey in Switzerland. Other popular varieties in the region include Müller-Thurgau, Grau Burgunder, Weiss Burgunder, Spätburgunder and Weissherbst. Other agricultural products include cherries; the region is called by Germans the Tuscany of Germany, referring to the Tuscan region of Italy, due in part to its climate, milder than the rest of the nation. This region is home to the German dialect known as Alemannisch; the most famous writer of Alemannisch literature is Johann Peter Hebel. Markgräflerland includes the following locations: Auggen, Ballrechten-Dottingen, Binzen, Britzingen, Dattingen, Efringen-Kirchen, Gersbach, Hartheim am Rhein, Hausen im Wiesental, Heitersheim, Hügelheim, Kandern, Kleinkems, Lörrach, Marzell, Müllheim, Neuenweg, Schliengen, Seefelden, Sulzburg, Tegernau, Vögisheim, Weil am Rhein, Wieslet, Wollbach.
