    The Scheuerberg near Neckarsulm is a 300 m high elevation of the Sulmer Bergebene, on which was once the castle Scheuerberg with chapel and is considered the local mountain of the city. Until the land consolidation between 1970 and 1974 numerous stones with stone carvings from Roman times were to be found in the vineyards on the Scheuerberg. In 1974, a huge stone wall of the former castle was uncovered, whose dimensions have caused historians to say that the castle on the Scheuerberg was possibly the most powerful of the numerous medieval castles in the surrounding area of ​​Heilbronn.

    The Scheuerberg at Neckarsulm in the district of Heilbronn in Baden-Württemberg is 310.2 m above sea level. NHN high elevation of the Sulmer Bergebene, on which once the castle Scheuerberg with chapel was and which is considered as local mountain of the city.
    A chapel on the Scheuerberg was first mentioned in 1264 in connection with a foundation of Engelhard IV and Engelhard V. von Weinsberg. In the same document, a castle on the mountain was mentioned, whose construction is dated to the period between 1218 and 1250 - today called Castle Scheuerberg. On the west side of the mountain facing the Neckar is said to have been the main castle, east of it the outer bailey. The builders are the lords of Weinsberg. Engelhard VII of Weinsberg sold the castle on May 2, 1335 to Archbishop Balduin von Trier, who was also administrator of the Archbishopric of Mainz at that time and on the Scheuerberg used a Kurmainzischen Vogt. On May 7, 1484 the Scheuerberg came under Deutschmeister Reinhard von Neipperg to the Teutonic Order. On 19 April 1525, the castle was burned down in the Peasants' War.
    After that, the castle was not repaired. The chapel is said to have been in good condition, as 1529 there services were held there. From the castle were initially still the keep and extremely massive walls available. Under German master Walther von Cronberg, who had also restored the destroyed castle Heuchlingen after 1530, existed in the 16th century plans to rebuild the castle on the Scheuerberg, but this was discarded. In the following decades and centuries, the stones of the castle were used for the construction of several large buildings, u. a. the Amorbacher Hof, the Neckarsulm parish church and 1655 the Neckarsulm Capuchin monastery. 1705 ordered a steward Stipplin the demolition of the then still standing donjon and the leveling of the terrain for use as a vineyard, but still 1785 stones of the ruins were removed to build vineyard walls.
    Until the land consolidation between 1970 and 1974 numerous stones with stone carvings from Roman times were to be found in the vineyards on the Scheuerberg. In 1974, a huge stone wall of the former castle was uncovered, whose dimensions have caused historians to say that the castle on the Scheuerberg was possibly the most powerful of the numerous medieval castles in the surrounding area of ​​Heilbronn.
