Mountain Biking Highlight
From here you have a great view over Heilbronn.The Ludwigsschanzen (also Ludwigschanzen) are two in the year 1693 created Erdschanzen on the pig mountain in Heilbronn. They are named after the Türkenlouis, Margrave Ludwig Wilhelm of Baden-Baden, who was in the Palatinate War of Succession as Commander in Chief of the imperial troops in the vicinity of Heilbronn and for better protection of the imperial city of Heilbronn let the hills create as still unpopulated artillery positions.The remains of the two star-shaped earth ramparts, each with about 50 m side length and upstream ditch are about 300 m apart from each other at the edge of the forest above the vineyards that pull up the pig mountain. The Ludwigsschanze I ♁⊙ lies in the Gewann Kohlpfad, the Ludwigsschanze II ♁⊙ in the Gewann Hell, a few hundred meters west of the existing from 1945 to 1971 Schweinsbergsiedlung.A few meters west of the Ludwigsschanze I and immediately above the vineyards, the Verschönerungsverein Heilbronn had a lookout tower built in 1900, which offered a wide view over Heilbronn and the Neckar valley and was called Ludwigstürmchen. After this turret burnt down on October 12, 1926, it was replaced in 1927 by a stone lookout hut ♁⊙, which was handed over to the public on March 24, 1928.
