The community with the longest name in Germany

This place kills every computer:


it definitely is too long for most of the computers !

It is a cosy small village though, just north of Karlsruhe. It has a rather rural character, is close to the Rhine river and to the forest and is connected to Karlsruhe by tram!

Great place to live in!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:very rural - nice and quiet
  • Cons:very rural - a little boring
  • In a nutshell:great place to live and still close enough to Karlsruhe

    Hi Christine, thanks for the postcard. Glad you had a good time at Carnival, and made some good updates here. None of my UK friends have ever heard of "Dinner for One" by the way.

    You should put YOUR home-cooking under warnings and dangers as your food is so yummy that we all eat too much at your table!

    Great tip about 'Katrin'. You should have heard the song about it at the carnival session of the LCC - to the melodie of 'Oh, oh, Katrin' from the Black Föss. They even joked that Katrin only passed Leopoldshafen and gave Eggenstein the cold shoulder ;o)
