    Rarely does one have the opportunity to visit four castles in such a small space. Whether a short walk or as part of a larger hike, the Four Castle Trail is definitely worth a visit.Vorderburg and Mittelburg are both privately owned are not accessible.
    The Vorderburg is fenced wide and you get really only the keep from the distance to face. At the Mittelburg run the public paths along the outer walls and you also get a good impression of the beautifully preserved grounds from the outside.
    The two ruins Hinterburg and Schwalbennest are freely accessible and offer great views in Neackartal.

    The Schwalbennest is the castle with the most beautiful view of the Neckar and Neckarsteinach.

    ok, 2 of the 4 can "only" be seen from the outside, but the inhabited castles are especially beautiful!

    There are several castles and castle ruins on the Neckar. But here there are 4 pieces to hike within a few meters. And every historical building is a little different.

    At the moment, May 2021, the Schadeck is not fully accessible due to renovation work on the stairs. It's still worth it!

    A very scenic route with great views of and from the castles. The way is easy to go. Not all castles can be visited, the Schadeck is currently also closed due to construction work. But it's still worth it.
