Tips

  • Matthias Brandt

    Very nice view of a Neckar loop and over to the Dilsberg festival. However, the ascent of the tower is adventurous, since it is pitch black there, not really possible or very difficult without a flashlight. In the meantime, however, climbing the tower is no problem with a flashlight app on your smartphone.

  • The (about 113 steps) ascent to the tower ♖ is rewarded with a beautiful view over the Neckarschleife

  • Freely accessible ruin with lookout tower, no entrance fee needed. One of the castles of the four-castle corner on the Neckar. Short walk to the Schwalbennest, definitely with visit.

  • If you are on the Neckarsteig, you should definitely include the ascent to the tower of the rear castle. Since the tower has no windows, it is very dark inside and you need a flashlight or cell phone to get to the top safely. The view from above compensates for the difficult ascent.

  • The back castle, also called Alt-Schadeck, is the ruin of a spur castle at 165 m above sea level. NN near Neckarsteinach in the Bergstrasse district in Hesse. It is the oldest of the four castles Vorderburg, Mittelburg, Hinterburg and Schwalbennest and the ancestral castle of the noble women of Steinach.

  • Steep increase worthwhile.
    Dilsberg Castle costs 2 euros entry, worth it as the castle and the castle galleries are preserved.
