The typical houses of Edenkoben all follow the same pattern. The residential houses are lined up with their gables towards the streets. Next to each house there is a courtyard, closed off from the street by a high wall with a large arched gate, big enough for a loaded farm wagon. Some of these arches have inscriptions with dates, names or initials of the builders. The economy buildings are in the back of the courtyard.

They all used to be wineries and farms. Nowadays many have become just residential houses of people who work elsewhere, but there are still several wineries among them.

There are still a lot of houses from the 16th to 18th century in the town. Klosterstraße has the finest ensemble. The upper part of Bahnhofstraße is also a good address.
