Hirschhorn Castle


Medieval knight's castle above the Neckar valley

The castle complex of Hirschhorn from the 12th century was the seat of the Knights von und zu Hirschhorn for over 400 years, who made a name for themselves as wealthy merchants and brave fighters. High above the Neckar valley, the well-preserved medieval complex offers a unique view of the Neckar loop and is connected to the former city wall. Still visible today are the 2.4-meter-thick and 13-meter-high shield wall, the keep, the outer castle, as well as the kennels and parts of the core castle. Currently, Hirschhorn Castle houses a hotel with restaurant as well as a registry office. Another part of the castle complex is privately inhabited.
