The Ottilienkirche is the prominent point of the Tüllinger Berg with a view towards the Swiss Jura, the Vosges, the Schwarzwald as well as over the Rhine plain. It was first mentioned in 1173, at the same time as the churches of St. Chrischona and St. Margreten in Binningen. It is one of the Mythical Places on the Upper Rhine and commemorates three saints.

The Hindenburg monument is the starting point for walks along the Tüllinger Berg to the Lindenplatz, past the Ottilienkirche to Öltingen. There are several nature conservation areas in the vicinity and so there are many opportunities to observe rare birds, such as the black woodpecker or common raven in the forest and the wryneck or cirl bunting in the orchards. The entire Tüllinger Berg is part of the European bird sanctuary network NATURA 2000 and therefore particularly interesting for nature lovers.


The tour leads past the Diakonieheim in Obertüllingen in the direction of the church. The Ottilienkirche is open to visitors and is a beautiful lookout point under old chestnut trees. From here, walks lead in all directions to discover forests, orchard meadows, vineyards and species-rich meagre grasslands. The hike to Ötlingen takes about one hour, and about 1.5 hours to the Röttelner church. It is also possible to make the ascent on foot along small paths, either from Weil am Rhein or from Riehener Schlipf.

The path up to the church is wheelchair accessible, but wheelchairs are not recommended on the other walks.


There are fireplaces and picnic areas at the Daurhütte near Oetlingen or the Lindenplatz. In Tüllingen there are simple eating options. Good restaurants, on the other hand, can be found in Weil am Rhein, for example the Restaurant Krone or the Restaurant Adler and in Riehen, for example the Restaurant Wiesengarten Musetti.
