Inzlingen is a municipality in the district of Lörrach in southern Baden and is located near Basel. The small moated castle of Inzlingen (also known as Reichenstein Castle) has survived the centuries and today presents itself as an idyllic jewel box.

The original castle dates back to the 15th century. The Reichensteins, a Swiss knightly family in the service of the Bishops of Basel, resided here. From 1819, several other owners followed until the castle was acquired by the municipality of Inzlingen.

The late medieval building with elements of the late Gothic and Renaissance styles was baroqueised between 1674 and 1745, but without removing all the details of its predecessor.
