Wachenburg Old Town

Wachenburg Old Town


Place for meetings & encounters

Who sees the Wachenburg from afar, certainly thinks first of a typical medieval knight’s castle. But far from it! The Wachenburg, which towers about 300 meters above the town of Weinheim between Mannheim and Heidelberg, was only built between 1907 and 1928. Since then, it has served as a meeting place and conference venue in the middle of the Bergstrasse-Odenwald Geo-Nature Park. The magnificent palace, the light-flooded castle courtyard and not least the rustic castle tavern ensure that all guests spend unforgettable hours here. The unique panoramic view over the Rhine plain to the Palatinate Forest is also absolutely worth seeing. Therefore, the Wachenburg near Weinheim is also a very popular destination for hikers.
