Museum and History

“Life at the Knight’s Castle” is the award-winning exhibition at the Castle Museum, which provides answers to interesting questions such as: How did you become a knight? What weapons did a knight carry? Why were castles built? And how have its inhabitants lived in past centuries?

The incidence in the Neckar-Odenwald district is currently stable below 35.

On a journey through time from the Middle Ages to the 19th century, visitors encounter armoured knights, courageous reformers, brave warlords and passionate hunters. A true treasure trove of the castle is the library with over 3000 volumes and around 30 incunabula. The wooden library, a 200-year-old herbarium with 93 volumes, offers a unique overview of the forest flora of every era. The shield wall leads to the 40 m high keep with a turret room.

School classes

Individual class excursions with a guided tour of the museum, flight demonstration, retreat and overnight at the hostel – depending on your budget.

Guided Tours

The owner family offers guided tours for groups all year round and special reformation tours through the castle chapel– even outside the opening hours.
