The chicken weir in Grötzingen is probably the only building in a foreign area that the city of Durlach has built, maintained and renovated over the centuries.
As is well known, the Pfinz did not flow along the northern edge of Durlach at the end of the Middle Ages, but divided into today's Gießbach and another watercourse when it emerged from the Pfinztal, which ran in the rough direction of today's relief canal until shortly before Hagsfeld and then roughly today's Pfinzlauf followed. The "Durlacher Pfinz" is, as a look at topographical maps shows, an artificial one in the 14th / 15th Century created watercourse. For those in the 12./13. Founded in the 19th century, the location on a river was vital for the operation of mills and other trades as well as for filling the trenches of the city fortifications.
