  • Zauderjo

    Well-preserved Hangburg and palace complex and landmark of the city of the same name.
    It can be reached from the city in about 10 to 15 minutes. There is also a large parking lot in front of the complex. Here many hiking trails lead along, including the Neckarsteig. Guided tours can be booked for the castle.

    Today it is still used as a hiking destination as a hotel and by the registry office for wedding ceremonies.
    Great view over the Neckarschleife.

    From the old town you climb up to the castle and from there you have a wonderful view over Hirschhorn. You can also eat delicious in the restaurant there.
