Müllheim is located in the center of Markgräflerland, in between the “Bath triangle” of Badenweiler, Bad Krozingen and Bad Bellingen. The city lies between the Rhine valley and the Black Forest with hills devoted largely to vineyards.

Müllheim is bordered by Auggen (to the south), Vögisheim to the southeast, and Hügelheim to the north. The main artery is the B3 which runs a north-south route along Müllheim’s western side. It lies between Freiburg in the north and BaselSwitzerland to the south on this route. source: Wikipedia

    1. I wish that I could have taken Mother. She loved to travel, and taught me the love for family and history. I have worked on our family genealogy for 26 yrs. now. It just would not be the same without her. Besides the fact, that I cannot afford to go, and I can’t leave my husband. He has health problems. I love looking at pics though.

      1. In other words…you plan your trips like I do mine !
        The weather is always perfect, the people are friendly and there is no waiting at the airport 🙂
