    If you come to Leopoldshafen and keep driving then you end up at the Rhine river. This is a popular spot for fishing, walking, buying local produce and in summer for having a beer or two sitting on the restaurant terrace. Opening times in winter are narrowed down.

    This quaint little museum was closed when we were there. The building is the former city hall. The museum is open on Sundays only from 10.30 till 12.00 and 14.00 till 16.00. If you are a group you can arrange other times though.

    There are some nice peaceful streches of a canal along which it is lovely to go for a walk. Local people also go biking or jogging along here or walk their dog.

    The photos are from my July 2006 visit.

    Main Street in Eggenstein

    Until the 1970s Eggenstein and Leopoldshafen have been two different villages.

    The inhabitants of Eggenstein were mainly gardeners and farmers. The village was neither rich nor really beautiful. But still today it has its own charme. Nice little houses along the main street. And the church in the center.

    Museum in Leopoldshafen

    In the museum they put together the furniture and old photos, which the poeple donated to the museum. There are also many things, which come from Eggenstein.

    Eggenstein and Leopoldshafen had been separate small towns until 1974, when they were united.

    Museum in Leopoldshafen

    Heimatmuseum

    There is a small museum in Leopoldshafen, which is worth a visit.

    The museum is in the old townhall, which was build between 1720 and 1730. It is a nice timbered building.

    Leopoldshafen is a small town above the Rhine River with little houses. It has been a village of fisher men and farmers. Their daily live is shown in the museum. The exhibits show old tools and an old kitchen. Most fascinating are the more recent exhibits of children's books and items, which are not older than 30 or 40 years. Many things reminded me of my childhood.

    kitchen utenmsil museum

    Strolling around this little village near to Karlsruhe you can find a very interesting private museum of kitchen utensils. The opening times are very special, but with good contacts in VT you may have the chance to visit this extraordinary museum. Have a look on other pages of Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen and Germany to find out more.

    This neat little house can be found in Leopoldshafen. If you go round the museum in the old city hall and down the little street then you may see it.

    This is the main street of Leopoldshafen. The museum is located there too. Around there in the side street you may find the odd gem.

    Leopoldshafen

    This is the main street in Leopoldshafen. As the Rhine River is not far (you only have to drive about 2 or 3 kilimetres down the road) most inhabitants of Leopoldshafen were fishermen.
