Fairly aggressive trek up to the castle from the closest parking area. Some cafe and restaurant opportunities inside the grounds. Very nice vistas on all sides. Not much protection from the weather unless you're inside the restaurant. Very small as castles go, primarily a ruin.

This is a well-preserved castle with some recent historical significance. It provides stunning views of the Neckar Valley and on sunny days you can watch the hang-gliders soar from the nearby cliffs. There's a very good restaurant within the castle, as well as a little...More

The castle ruins have been partially restored. The restaurant has good food. They also have occasional medieval dinners with entertainment.

Sitting atop mount... something, this marvellous example of medieval workmanship can be seen from miles around. Sited about 40-mins drive from Stuttgart, you can reach about 400 metres from the entrance. Even then, it is a steep climb to the actual entrance. However, once you...More

This imposing structure can be seen up on the mountain top from all over the region, but it's not hard to get there and the walk up to it along a wide paved path through the woods is not long though steel at times. The...More

This is a nice walk for all ages and a wonderful place to take in the scenery while enjoying a cold beer, wurst and pommes with ketchup and mayo. The paragliders and gliders dropped by a plane were numerous. We also enjoyed the falconry show...More
