Bike Touring Highlight
The Eppinger lines were a fortified line of defense that extended from Weißenstein near Pforzheim via Mühlacker, Sternenfels, Eppingen to Neckargemünd. It had a total length of 86 kilometers. It was supposed to prevent French raids in the Palatinate War of Succession (1688-1697). Chartaquen (watchtowers) have been built at the following locations: near Niefern-Öschelbronn, near Schönenberg on the Sauberg and those near Eppingen. All are nice destinations for bike rides.
