One of the most beautiful bird and wildlife havens on the Old Rhine. In the middle of the river Rhine, one of the most beautiful bird and nature reserves along the Rhine is our house "Princess Harbour."
Small lakes and miles of canals winding through the lush vegetation, reminiscent in some places a little of the Amazon. From rowing boat or canoe can be explored throughout the species richness. Countless species of birds have their homes here. Heron nests are in the entwined pastures, taking their place in the crowns of mistletoe. Grebes and cormorants their circles on the water, while the next prey fish are made to dive. With a little luck you can see here the rare kingfisher.
Here the Rhine meadows open to a small lake, the old port of Karlsruhe: the Port of Prince Leopold of Baden. He gave the former fishing village Schröck its present name. Leopoldshafen. Coal ships and horse drawn carts are long gone. The harbor has silted up over the last century resulted in a wildly overgrown lake. And when the sun is low over the water, the whole sea silk shines in the evening sun. It is a place of silence. Here on the banks on a 1700 m² plot of roses, old poplars and apple trees, the property is "Princess Harbour."
The floodplains are ideal for long walks or bicycle tours. The extensive trail network extends to Karlsruhe and west across the Rhine into the Palatinate. In summer you can swim in numerous lakes with crystal clear water. Leopoldshafen has a bird park and sports fields. The village has bakers, butchers and supermarkets that provide us with everything. And if you want to not cook times, there are only five minutes walk from an Italian restaurant.
