Bike Touring Highlight
The Catholic cemetery church of St. Nazarius and Celsus in Ersheim, known as the Ersheim chapel, is considered the oldest church in the Neckar valley and a gem of regional Gothic. A first church in its place was probably already in the 8th or 9th century, the oldest parts date from the 14th century, when the church Gravelge of the Lords of Hirschhorn was. The church is older than the city of Hirschhorn on the other bank of the Neckar and until the 17th century it was the parish church of the city (only reachable by ferry), which had up to five altarists working alongside a pastor. Since 1636, the church is only used as a cemetery chapel.
