Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen Travel Guide: 94 reviews and 221 photos

Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen are two towns that joined together so that they could stay independent of Karlsruhe.

I first came to Egg-Leo as the locals call it in summer 2003. My second visit was in July 2006 and my third in December 2006. Each time I see a little bit more of this town.

Flammkuchen or Pizza?

This flammkuchen in pizza form can only be had in tini58de and madschick's private restaurant where you can go by invitation only.

Eggenstein is a peaceful countryside town which can be reached by Stadtbahn S1. It has all the major facilities including its own brewery.

It lies convieniently for day trips to France, the Black Forest etc.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Warm, friendly people

    Haha, this tiny place of very looong and difficult name (really German!) is the VT-famous destination! Great to see Christine and Holger on your pics.

    Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen seems to become a Mekka for VT-pilgrims ! Plenty of capitals in this world have just 1 or 2 rated VT-pages, Egg-Leo has 10 already !! Congrats to Tini & Heinz !
