Vintage Car Tour 2: Sinsheim – Rothenburg o.d.T.

.

From the Kraichgau through the Hohenloher Land to the Tauber Valley

The second tour begins in Sinsheim at Steinsberg Castle, which is also known as the "Compass of the Kraichgau" due to its exposed location. From there the castle road takes you back to the Neckar valley to Bad Wimpfen. It winds its way through wine landscapes, bringing into play the "broom taverns" typical of the region. They are the perfect stop when it comes to homemade wines and homemade products. The broom on the house shows from afar that the restaurant is open. In Heilbronn, which has made a name for itself as Germany's largest red wine growing region, the Castle Road leaves the Neckar valley and makes its way to Hohenlohe via Weinsberg - the name says it all here. "In each village a castle", say the inhabitants about their homeland, and that is true. Öhringen, Neuenstein, Waldenburg and Kirchberg an der Jagst are the towns and castles along the route that prove this. Finally, Schwäbisch Hall has another castle, the Comburg. The former Benedictine monastery offers wonderful views of the city from its walk-in fortified walkway. From Schwäbisch Hall, the Castle Road leads to Kirchberg, a small town high above the Jagst Valley with the largest castle complex in Hohenlohe, and then on to Rothenburg ob der Tauber, the last stop on the second tour.

Excursion tip

On the way, a detour to the small residential town of Langenburg with its magnificent castle, the German Car Museum and the historic Old Town is worthwhile. Also worth seeing are the town church and the lion smithy, a historic farrier's and wagon smithy from the time before the electrification of the working machines.

Museum recommendation

A loop over Langenburg is worthwhile in every respect (see map). The city offers great views over the Jagstal valley and the cosy cafés invite you to stop for a bite to eat. The castle houses the German Automobile Museum, where numerous exhibits are presented under the motto "People, cars and history".

Beer garden recommendation

On the way a stop at the wheat beer garden Food Court in Heilbronn is worthwhile. The city's largest beer garden is not far from the Neckar river and within walking distance of Heilbronn city centre. A sufficient number of parking spaces are available directly in front of it. Specialities from four state kitchens are offered. The old trees provide plenty of shade even on hot days. From April to October 2019, shuttle buses will run between the beer garden and the grounds of the Federal Garden Show, which will then take place in Heilbronn.

 Castle Tavern Steinsberg Castle

Stopover tip

At the end of the first tour, a detour to Steinsberg Castle near Sinsheim is worthwhile. In the castle tavern, a perfect combination of historical charm and contemporary ambience has been created. In summer, the beer garden in the castle courtyard is the ideal place for a break. The philosophy of the castle kitchen includes fresh, high-quality products and seasonal as well as regional, partly medieval specialities. The hosts have dedicated themselves entirely to the "experience of the Middle Ages" and celebrate this epoch, among other things, with their public knightly feasts.
