Bike Touring Highlight
The castle Liebenstein towers south of Neckarwestheim on a narrow ridge high above the Neckar. At the heart of the well-preserved complex is the lower castle with the keep of 1230. Also noteworthy is the castle chapel in the Renaissance style.
Today the castle is a hotel and a very good restaurant with fine cuisine, where you can of course taste regional wines.

Nice little castle over Neckarwestheim. The way up is good to drive on, there is not much traffic, although many a "golf pro" thinks he has to thunder up the mountain with his Benz. To the circle of customers of the restaurant in the castle cyclists in appropriate clothes hardly.

The new fortress, which was built a little off the Neckar, was apparently intended to put the Margrave of Baden in its place. He was one of Frederick II's closest allies within the empire and controlled his possessions of Besigheim and Lauffen the Neckar.
