The renowned Dreiländermuseum, the only one of its kind in Europe, presents the central permanent exhibition on the history and present of the Upper Rhine three-country region in German and French. It examines the connections between the countries, their formation, the life of the people on the border in the 20th century and future prospects. Various aspects such as border controls, smuggling, different currencies, the desire for freedom in 1848, the violence of the National Socialists and the new beginning after the Second World War are highlighted.

In addition to the permanent exhibition, the museum offers several large special exhibitions every year. As a facility with different divisions, the Dreiländermuseum has one of the most extensive collections in southern Baden.

The focus is on the trinational history and art of southern Baden. These include important public collections of Max Laeuger's ceramics, works by Johann Peter Hebel and exhibits on the Baden Revolution of 1848/49.
