    The Eppinger lines were an 86 km long fortified defensive line that reached from Weißenstein at Pforzheim about Mühlacker, Sternenfels, Eppingen to Neckargemünd. They were originally built at the end of the 17th century to prevent French raids during the Palatinate War of Succession.

    In Mühlacker you will find a replica of a watchtower, which also highlights the geographically advantageous location of this former defensive line.

    The paths around the Eppinger lines are still much used today, but rather by hikers and mountain bikers than by soldiers. Especially in the fall, take a walk through the colorful deciduous forest.

    The Eppinger lines have an exciting history. However, this is exactly where they do not pass.

    A small hiking path interspersed with tree roots runs parallel to the forest path on the old wall.

    Unfortunately, the Epping lines are currently closed due to drought.
