The city of Horb am Neckar is our sponsor.

Our facility is located in the Horb district of Mühlen.

The building of the kindergarten was completed in June 1996 in timber frame construction and occupied by us. Our "Krümelburg" is centrally located in the centre of the village, behind the school building, in the countryside. We have 2 mixed-age groups aged 3-6 years in a semi-open concept.


Our children have 2 group rooms at their disposal, each with an adjoining room and a second play level. Here they also have the opportunity to retreat, e.g. to the cozy cozy corner. Our entrance area is a cloakroom and exercise room at the same time. The furniture, as well as the kitchen and sanitary facilities are child-friendly. Via a terrace we reach our large playground.

Outdoor Facilities

From our terrace we reach our beautiful, large playground. This is fenced and consists of a large climbing frame with slide, a sandpit, a double swing, a barefoot path, a playhouse, a climbing tower, a willow tunnel, various play corners, a mud corner and a raised bed.
