    Gamburg is located in the Taubertal. The pretty little place is best known for its castle of the same name, which towers high above the village. Although the castle is privately owned and permanently inhabited, it can be visited.

    From the first weekend in April to the first weekend in November, Gamburg Castle is always open on Sundays and Saturdays and on public holidays from 2 to 6.30 p.m. Entry costs 3 euros, a tour costs 6 euros.

    The Gamburg, which is picturesquely enthroned above the Tauber, was built in the mid-12th century as a border fortress of the Archbishopric of Mainz to the Würzburg Hochstift, making it one of the oldest castles in the surrounding area.

    The castle with its beautiful garden and exotic trees is definitely worth it. Outstanding events include medieval festival and falconry show with horses.

    Historically there is a lot to see in the village. There is a sign on the sports field showing all the sights. Good starting point for a tour through and around the place.

    From here there is a very small, steep and lonely road to Kembacher Höhe. Behind the train station at the natural stone factory it starts up to Höhefeld.

    The Höhenburg complex is located directly above Gamburg on the 242.5 m high Schlossberg above the Tauber. The historical term Upper Castle was created to differentiate the rule of the Lower Castle Gamburg, which was separated from 1568/77 to 1806/07. The castle has been privately owned and inhabited since 1546.

    Anyone who visits Gamburg suddenly opens up to one of the most beautiful local views of Franconia: like in a picture book, behind a St. Nepomuk bridge that crosses the Tauber → the village of Gamburg with the pointed tower of its parish church lies at the foot of the castle enthroned in a former vineyard.

    Unfortunately we were not allowed in. Burg lies high above the Taubertal. You have to pedal a lot with a bike, even with an ebike.
    Wonderful look.

    The Gamburg ob der Tauber is a European cultural heritage and is known for one of the most extraordinary hall buildings of the Staufer period. His “Barbarossa frescoes” with depictions of the crusade next to magnificent arcades are considered the oldest secular wall paintings north of the Alps and the only surviving original painting of a knight's hall. The castle was never destroyed, also thanks to its rescue by Götz von Berlichingen, and is still inhabited today - allegedly even by over 21 ghosts! Your keep was still in use during World War II. The baroque park with botanical rarities and nymph fountains along its light axis is unique as an integral part of a castle complex. The café in the courtyard is adorned with Mediterranean plants and offers a wonderful view of the Taubertal. The shop is now located in the old wash house. Weddings take place in the chapel and in the coat of arms room. The castle and castle park are open with regular tours on weekends and public holidays. Numerous events are also offered.

    From the village of Gamburg you have a great view of the castle of the same name. It is one of the oldest castles in the area.
