Eberbach Castle consists of three separate castles, above the city of Eberbach.
The castle ruins can be reached from a forest car park on Neue Dielbacher Straße, or via a hiking trail from the center of Eberbach, the so-called Katzensteig.
It is believed that the front castle was built in the first half of the 12th century and the central castle, including the front castle, in the last third of the 12th century.
The rear castle was not explored until 1959–1963.
In his book "A Tramp Abroad", the American writer Mark Twain describes the castle ruins as strange but spectacularly announced because the boat operator on the Neckar linked them to a dragon saga.
From the front castle you have an impressive view over the city of Eberbach and the Neckar valley.

The ruins of Burg(en) Eberbach, on the narrow mountain spur above the Neckar, are particularly beautiful. Some remains of the wall are well preserved and convey the typical castle feeling in small, delimited areas around a fireplace, under archways and ivy tendrils. There is also a free view over the Neckar.

Unfortunately, the most interesting of the ruins was closed at Easter 2022. Nevertheless, you can enjoy the area. You come across these ruins directly when you either walk up the Katzensteig from Eberbach over the serpentines, or down the Katzensteig from Katzenbuckel.
