Zweiflingen has managed to keep its charme and rural idyll up to present days. The lovely landscape is perfect for long walks, strenuous hikes or cycling tours and relaxing holidays.
Among old buildings and walls you can catch a glimpse of cultural history. Zweiflingen is the oldest community in the area around Öhringen with its historical church St. Nikolaus. Records from German and Roman times suggest that there used to be a water sanctuary with a small and plain chapel here. During Christianization, historical holy villages were integrated into Christian churches, also was this chapel. The church’s choir might be a relict of this sacred place, as it has an exceptional curve and also its name “Nikolaus church” indicates old age. The tower shows elements of this in the traditional Roman style.
