In the shade of old chestnut trees, you can enjoy a beer in the summer, the beautiful view of the vineyards, Schriesheim and the Rhine valley (up to the Palatinate Forest). The restaurant is okay, the prices slightly increased and the service is usually nice. The way up from Schriesheim is short and there is a parking lot behind the castle, so that it can be full in the summer and takes a bit longer.
In winter (January, February), the restaurant - like unfortunately most restaurants in the Odenwald - closed.

Before 1237, the Lords of Strahlens erected a castle on the flank of the Mount of Olives.
The mighty remains of the wall of the palace with its striking window front to the west and south, together with the keep, became a widely visible symbol of Schriesheim.
The castle is privately owned and houses a restaurant. March - December daily from 11:00 am, open all day; January and February company holidays
