Kandern

4.5
Kandern is a town in southwestern Germany in the state of Baden-Württemberg, in the Kreis (district) of Lörrach. During the Battle of Schliengen, in which the French Revolutionary army fought the forces of Austria, the battle lines of both armies ended in Kandern. It is not far from a tripoint called the "Three-Country Corner" (Dreiländereck), where the three countries Germany, France and Switzerland meet.To many in North America, Kandern is best known as the birthplace of John Sutter. It was on Sutter's land that gold was discovered in 1848, which sparked the California gold rush, and the beginning of intensive settlement in California.Today, Kandern has a large community of English-speaking residents as a result of the presence of Black Forest Academy. This is an English-language institution founded in 1956. Most of the students are children of Christian missionaries from around the world, mainly from the United States, Canada, and South Korea.
Kandern is in Baden-Wurttemberg. Plan your vacation with our Germany route maker tool and discover the best things to do in Kandern.
