The quaint and quintessential town of Leimen is nestled in a picturesque pocket of the beautiful Baden-Wurttemberg region. Despite boasting the title of the area’s industrial centre, the town retains an antique charm most present in its interesting architecture. Consisting of 4 distinctive districts, the town offers visitors a relaxing respite from metropolitan life; wander the blissful riverbanks in search of a picturesque picnic spot or delve into the past with the observation of ancient ruins.
A Terrific Town Hall
Leimen’s most impressive architectural gem is undoubtedly the terrific Town Hall, a beautifully baroque example of classical splendour. As if the fabulous façade isn’t impressive enough, the town hall is home to a decorative phenomenon known as the Hall of Mirrors; the splendid space is a former ballroom that glitters with painted murals and mythological murals.
An excellent ecclesiastical example is St. Giles Church, a stunning structure that welcomes worshippers with its unique entrance portal and prismatic stained glass windows.
A Magnificent Market
Immerse yourself in the quintessential culture of Leimen’s artistic and culinary heritage with a visit to the Weekly Market, a colourful display of stalls selling traditional treats and artisan products. Fresh fruit and vegetables, Tyrolean specialities and recently caught fish all contribute to the picturesque picnic of products.
An Ambient Feast
Immerse yourself in the intimate and inviting atmosphere of the Leimener Brauhaus, a traditional brewery whose hearty and wholesome menu adheres to the region’s rich culinary tradition. Slide into a wood panelled booth with a refreshing pint of locally brewed beer before selection from a traditional range of treats; the beef and Parmesan pasta comes highly recommended and is best accompanied with the signature salad.
