Singen (Hohentwiel) is an industrial city in the very south of Baden-Württemberg in southern Germany and just north of the German-Swiss border. It is also situated within close proximity of Lake Constance and is the most important city in the Hegau area. The most famous landmark of Singen is Hohentwiel, a volcanic stub on which there are the ruins of a fortress destroyed by French troops during the Napoleonic Wars.


Further sights in Singen are the Geographic Museum and the local Saint Martin's Church with its Gothic tower (77 metres).
