Schloss Zwingenberg

Schloss Zwingenberg Review

Many people say this castle on a crag above the village of Zwingenberg, about 53 km (33 miles) from Heidelberg, is the most romantic of all the castles along the Neckar (except for Heidelberg, of course). It is the residence of Ludwig, Prince of Baden and his family, so castle tours are by advance arrangement only, and can include the family vineyards. The woodland trails around the castle, including to a deep gorge, are open daily.

Schlossfestspiele Zwingenberg. The annual castle festival, which features theater and concert performances, takes place within the ancient walls of the Zwingenberg in August. 06263/771. www.schlossfestspiele-zwingenberg.de.
