Rastatt is a Murg River (Rhine River) cruise port and town Germany's Baden-Wurttemberg state, with population around 60,000. The town is located on Murg River, approx 6 km (4 ml) to the north of its confluence with Rhine River. The nearest Rhine cruise port is the spa town Baden-Baden - approx 11 km (7 ml) to the south.
The town started to develop in the 18th century, remaining until 1771 the residence of Markgrafschaft Baden (Margraviate of Baden / 1112-1803) - a territory of the Holy Roman Empire (962-1806). Here were held the Treaty of Rastatt (1714) and Second Congress of Rastatt (1797-99). By the mid-19th-century, the town was heavily fortified and became one of Prussia's strongest fortresses. However, in 1890, all its fortifications were dismantled.
Town's current-day economy is marked by the Mercedes-Benz car factory opened here in 1997. As cruise port, Rastatt is included in the regular schedule of the German cruisetour company Phoenix Reisen.
