    Erbach is a tranquil town with beautiful half-timbered charm. In the old town you will find several restaurants and cafes. Be sure to check out the castle. The impressive building was built in the High Middle Ages. Among other things, the castle houses the well-known collections of antiquities of Count Franz I zu Erbach-Erbach and the German Ivory Museum. All information about the guides can be found here: schloss-erbach.de.

    Castle and many half-timbered houses, very nice to durchschlendern. Marketplace is currently under construction (July 2017).

    Erbach's history is shaped by the centuries-old connection to the Counts of Erbach-Erbach, whose rulership roughly encompassed the area of today's Odenwald district and who maintained their residence in Erbach.
