Lörrach

Geography:
Lörrach is the capitol of its Landkreis with the same name. Known as a major administrative center it is located in the extreme south west corner of the Republic of Germany, on the Rhine River. Of the population of 44,600 residence, 34.4% are Roman Catholic, 41.1% are Evangelical, 10.4% are Jewish and the remaining 4.1% are noncommittal.
At its lowest point, near the Rhein River, Lörrach is 272 meters above sea level.
Its highest point of 555 meters above sea level can be found in the foothills of the Black Forest. The City of Lörrach covers an area of 39,42 square kilometers.

History:
Long before the first Alemannic settlers built their mud huts in the 6th century, the area was no wilderness. Roman legionnaires, peasant farmers and merchants had lived, since the turn of the millennium on both banks of the upper Rhine, in villages, farms, large and small, or in forts. The smaller settlement on the eastern side of the Rhein Valley was to remain unknown, for 500 years.
In the year 1102, the settlement is documented as Loracho. It was owned by the monastery of St. Alban in Basle and the Lords of Roetteln.
At the request of the Roettler Lords, and in order to reward them for their services, in 1403, King Ruprecht granted the settlement to right to hold market. At that time there were 300 inhabitants.
The favorable position at the edge of the great traffic route of the Rhein Valley and in the foothills of the Black Forest, afforded the residents only short periods of peace. Further prosperity was hindered by plague and economic hardship. It was the outcome of war, that brought about the granting of the town charter.
In a war of succession of Louis XIV, the French troops destroyed the Rotteln Castle. Seeking an administrative center, the Margrave of Baden, successor of the Rottler Lords since 1503, granted the village of Lörrach its town charter in 1682. Successive wars did not allow this prerogative to become effective, it had to be renewed in 1756. Lörrach, is the only village to have been raised to this status of town twice.
With its rise in status, to a town, the old market place of Lörrach, became the town center. In Wallbrunnstasse, stood the first Town Hall, from which Gustav von Struve proclaimed ther German Republic on 21 September 1848.
At the end of the 19th century, there were 6.700 inhabitants of Lörrach. The sudden increase of population began with the industrialization , particularly in textiles,connection to the railway network and economic growth as a result of capitol flowing in from neighboring countries.
