    The Haigern is a 285 meter high mountain between Talheim and Flein in the district of Heilbronn in northern Baden-Württemberg. It is located on Talheimer district northwest of the village. On the mountain is the same place Haigern. During the Palatinate War of Succession Haigern served from late May to early June 1693 the commander in chief of the imperial troops, Margrave Ludwig Wilhelm of Baden -Baden (Turkenlouis), as headquarters in the repulse of the attempts west of Heilbronn deployed French troops to translate to the eastern bank of the Neckar. The development of the mountain goes back to the lords of Gemmingen. Philipp von Gemmingen acquired there from 1786 larger lands, including 34 acres of the community Talheim. He had there built a castle-like building (Steinernes house) with numerous outbuildings in the late 18th century. The shell was completed in 1791, in that year the topping-out ceremony was celebrated. However, the builder died in 1800 before the completion of the estate. With the entire estate and the shell 1813 was sold on demolition. The buyer Jakob Langjahr had the buildings removed. After a major fire in Flein on 14 April 1815, Langjahr provided the stones for the reconstruction of the ten destroyed houses. Later, an agricultural estate was built on the Haigern, which developed into a popular destination with a restaurant until the late 19th century. With a contract dated 26 August 1924, the youth welfare office Heilbronn-Land acquired the estate and set up in the following year a children's rest home for initially 15 children. In 1927, an extension was built, increasing the capacity of the convalescent home to 45 children. The farm on the estate remained to supply the rest home. In 1938, the city of Heilbronn acquired the plant, but later sold it back to private. Artillery fire heavily damaged the property towards the end of World War II, but was subsequently repaired.

    Very nice view to the Neckar and Schozachtal. The increase on the Haigern is worth the alone because of the view.
