    An idyllic place with a stone chapel with a stone cross and a monk above the pointed gate, an open hexagonal pavilion in which there is an open, wooden book with the head legend.

    It tells of Veit Imlin, who moved to Palestine with the Crusaders and was taken prisoner there. His wife Hildegund and his son Hans waited a long time for his return home. When Veit finally returned after many years, his wife had married another man. Veit sadly withdrew into the forest, where he now lived as a hermit. It is said that Hildegund and Hans repeatedly visited him in his hermitage, whereupon the new husband became jealous. He had Veit captured and beheaded. Namely where the little chapel stands today,

    Bridges, a well basin and a small pond with a stone-lined inlet, as well as benches and tables for resting are available.

    The Köpferbrunnenanlage in the wooded Köpfertal in the east of Heilbronn is a listed historical ensemble. A chapel or hermitage with a fountain and a bandstand form its core. In its present form, it was built by the Heilbronner Beautification Association in the last decades of the 19th century.

    To fill the drinking bottle with wonderfully cool water from the Köpferbrünnle.

    A good place for a break is the Köpferbrunnen with the Köpferpavillon, in which the associated saga is described.

    A pleasantly cool and shady place, in the past even concerts were held there. I could imagine that the acoustics here are good. Fortunately, you can't go there by car and the hermitage is less frequented.
