Karl Weysser's paintings provide an exciting insight into life and the Rhenish half-timbered buildings of Enkirch at the time around 1874. Many of his motifs are still preserved and easily recognisable. Unfortunately, some of the houses he painted fell victim to fire disasters in the 19th and early 20th centuries. But thanks to his works, one can still easily imagine what it looked like at the respective locations back then.

Author’s recommendation

A visit to the local history museum and the protestant church are worthwhile.

Turn-by-turn directions

The Karl Weysser circular trail leads in two loops through the historic centre of Enkirch along the locations from which he painted or drew the numerous half-timbered houses and motifs.From the tourist information office, the trail first leads uphill through Weingasse, along numerous half-timbered buildings, the local history museum to the Protestant church. From there we continue over cobblestones through the street "Am Wallgraben" to the junction Königsstraße/ Zum Herrenberg. There we turn right into the street "Zum Herrenberg", where we turn right again after about 100 metres into Königsstraße. In Königsstraße we follow the street to the left until we reach the "Spilles-Treppe". Here it is worth taking a look at the "Drilles", a historical punishment site. Then we follow the stairs uphill to the weekly market and continue along the street "Am Wochenmarkt" along the Protestant church and through Kirchstraße to Oberdorf. After a detour into Thonesstraße, we continue from there on the left through Sponheimerstraße to the junction with Priesterstraße. Follow this downhill through Priesterstraße and Weingasse back to the Tourist Information.
