    Kloster Maulbronn

    by tini58de Updated Oct 27, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This former Cistercian abbey which is almost 850 years old, is considered to be the best preserved and thus most impressive medival abbey north of the Alps. Twelve monks from Alsace began building the abbey in 1147 and for 390 years the monks at Maulbronn lived, built, prayed and worked there.

    After the Reformation - and the dissolution of the monastery - Maulbronn became the seat of the Dukes of Württemberg. Duke Christopher of Württemberg arranged for a Protestant monastery school to be established in 1556, which was converted into a Protestant theological seminary in 1807 and still exists today.

    It is a UNESCO world heritage site and a truly impressive place!

    Do not come to Pforzheim looking for old buildings or historical monuments. Almost everything here is gone forever. Do come here expecting a pleasant river promenade from where to enjoy the golden light of the sunset.

    Wutachschlucht

    by tini58de Updated Oct 14, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The "Wutachschlucht" is situated in the South of the Black Forest and is one of the last original wild stream regions in the middle of Europe.

    It is 200 m deep and 30 km long and is considered to be the youngest "Canyon" in the world.

    The fauna in the "Wutachschlucht" is estimated to have about 10.000(!) different species. The riches of the flora is likewise overwhelming.This is due the coming together of different climatic zones.

    During the season guided walks free of charge are offered through the "Wutachschlucht".

    Altrhein

    by tini58de Written Oct 15, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the Karlsruhe area you can visit the Rhine river - and you will see a huge stream with big ships and enormous bridges crossing the river..

    But once you stroll around a little off the beaten path, you will find small lakes and little rivers - the Altrhein (old Rhine). The old Rhine used to meander quite a bit and some 100 years ago, architects straightened it out.

    So the meander parts of the old Rhine river wer cut off and are now leading a seperate life.... It is VERY romantic and peaceful to go walking, go on bike tours or even go fishing there!

    Ettlingen

    Ettlingen is just south of Karlsruhe, easily reached by car or tram. It is a beautiful medieval town with a nice palace, half-timbered houses and cobblestone streets.

    For more information, please have a look at my Ettlingen page!

    Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen

    by tini58de Updated Sep 17, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Eggenstein is just north of Karlsruhe. It is a small town - nothing exciting, just very typical: a main street, a church, some shops, some small restaurants and some nice houses along the main street. What makes it special to me, is the fact, that we live here! For more information please have a look at my Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen page!

    Östringen

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I only happened to get to know about this place, because my wife tini58de had a concert there with her choir, which I wanted to see and hear.

    So I took the opportunity and the camera and looked around this nice little town. Again, nothing spectacular, but very typical!

    Östringen is in the north-east of Baden-Württemberg, between Bruchsal and Heidelberg.

    Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen is a small village just north of Karlsruhe - nothing really spectacular, except for the fact, that we live here....

    It has a nice little main street with an old church and some nice houses and it has a lot of landscape around...

    If you like to see "my tree" throughout the year, do have a look at my Eggenstein page.
