    The forest path around the Otilienberg is best planned on a tour.

    The Ottilienberg is located near Eppingen. In the 15th century a pilgrimage chapel was built on this mountain. Today there is an educational institution of the CJD (Christian Youth Village Germany).

    The Ottilienberg is a mountain near Eppingen in the district of Heilbronn in northern Baden-Württemberg. A pilgrimage chapel was built in the 15th century on the mountain, which was said to have been cultically used in ancient times. In the 17th century, the prehistoric rampart around the hilltop was turned into a fortress. The historic buildings were partially destroyed in the Second World War, the chapel was then rebuilt in a modified form and was the Monument of the Month in September 2015. In a built in the second half of the 20th century new complex west of the historic buildings is located on the mountain also the Central training and further education center of the Christian Youth Village Organization of Germany (CJD).
    The Ottilienberg is located about three kilometers southeast of Eppingen. The 310 meter high elevation is embedded in the Hardtwald. The cleared, about two-acre hilltop Ottilienbergs is a scenic reed sandstone oval with steep slopes to the Middle Keuper.

    The chapel on the Ottilienberg with the rest opportunities is very beautiful. According to my information, normally managed at least one Sunday a month by the Heilbronn Alpine Association. The adjacent orchard is also impressive.
    I can highly recommend the forest feel path from Jägersee!
