Rheinmünster is a town in the district of Rastatt in Baden-Württemberg in Germany. Formed in 1974[2], the town is a amalgamation of the former independent councils of Greffern, Schwarzach and Stollhofen. The name comes from the Rhine (Rhein), the river neighbouring the town and the Cathedral (Münster), a Benedictine abbey that fell to secularisation in 1803.
