The European Heritage Project has already succeeded in acquiring numerous buildings in Lauffen that have been abandoned to decay. The aim is to not only improve the state of the affected buildings, thereby rescuing them from complete ruin, but also to implement a complete town development concept.

Munich investor Peter Löw has big plans for the centre of Lauffen: As part of The European Heritage Project, Löw, whose wife was born in Lauffen, wants to restore a number of buildings and redesign the square in front of the church.
