Tips

  • Allgäuer Büble

    The state park Fürstenlager (also Fürstenlager Auerbach) is built around 1790, former summer residence of the Landgraves and Grand Dukes of Hesse-Darmstadt.

    The approximately 46-acre park surrounding a mineral well contains stately homes, monuments and garden temples, as well as a series of farm buildings arranged in the shape of a traditional village. The park itself is one of the early English gardens in Germany. It is embedded in the hilly landscape and houses, among other things, 50 exotic trees and shrubs, including one of the oldest giant sequoia trees in Germany. The garden art ensemble is largely preserved in its original form and today serves the population of the Rhine-Main area as a recreational area.

    The name Fürstenlager was given to the site by the local population. Since the park was not completed and was also accessible during stays of the grand ducal family, locals could watch the princes and their guests "lying on meadows" here.

    The princely camp was built around 1790 as the summer residence of the Landgraves and Grand Dukes of Hesse-Darmstadt at a fountain (Goethe well), whose water was then attributed healing power. It lies in a side valley parallel to the Rhine plain. In the approximately 46-acre park with many exotic trees, laid out in the manner of an English garden, a number of farm buildings are arranged as in a grown village. A special feature was the public manner of the former court.

    At the entrance to the princely camp are well-preserved strangers, cavaliers, and stable buildings on the right before it goes over the magnificent plane tree alley (rest of a seven-row building) in the village.

    There is something sublime about the royal camp, something calm and calming about it. In our fast-paced world, it is simply a nice place to "relax". Even if there is a lot going on and from very young to very old cavort there - everyone will find their place somewhere that seems most comfortable!

    One of the many highlights between Eberstadt and Heidelberg along the Bergstrasse. In addition to many ruins of monasteries and castles, here is a completely preserved ensemble to stroll through.
    But rather out of the way in the ascending valleys.
