The journey back in time works out in a special kind of way in the castle and palace hotels along the route. All of them have raised the clear orientation to the guest to their guiding principle, no matter whether they present themselves chivalrously coarse or opulently baroque. Especially weddings and other family celebrations are in good hands in the cosy atmosphere of the historic walls - where once kings have been guests, today the guest is king.
The stylish castle hotel high above the Neckar valley offers 26 double rooms, four single rooms and one junior suite. The rooms in the outer bailey above the stables, now the castle restaurant, offer a classic castle ambience and some have a view over the Neckar valley.
The main hotel building is located in the former sheepfold. Here, dark wood is combined with elegant fabrics in the rooms, which have a balcony with a view of the forest.
Further, brightly designed rooms are located in the former winegrowers' house. There, hotel or wedding guests can also use a playroom for their children, which is close to the rooms for celebrations.
Above the village, facing the Neckar River, stands the romantic castle, whose beginnings date back to the early Middle Ages and which was rebuilt in the 18th century in baroque style. It has always been the tradition of the house to cultivate hospitality and so today a part of the castle is still open for guests who are looking for seclusion and a cultivated atmosphere. There you will be welcomed in private surroundings.
