    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.

    Just above Schriesheim castle ruin. From the old town in a few minutes by a short climb through the vineyards. The castle complex houses a restaurant. Of course, anyone who wants to can climb the Mount of Olives above the castle.

    The descent through the vineyards is not entirely safe for the elderly, as it goes very steeply downhill. Good footwear is required!

    We were able to look to Mannheim and the Palatinate.

    This time we went back and forth over the castle path, but you can also choose the Blütenweg (below) or the way over the Mount of Olives for one of the directions, if you get along well with Komoot. I'm still at war with the SW :(

    But of course worth a visit to this castle, located on the Burgeweg of the Odenwald club. In the winter months is often closed ... But the view from here in the Rhine valley is great.

    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
