The Latin term "Rhenanae Tabernae" literally means "tavern" and "Rhine". Hence Rheinzabern was founded as a place of rest for travellers on Roman roads. Founded some 1950 years ago as "Rhenanae Tabernae" along a Roman road, it is known for its Samian ware production. Remnants of the production are still visible and there is a local museum dedicated to pottery and Roman culture.
