The Limburg (597.4 m above sea level NHN) is the home mountain of the city Weilheim an der Teck in the district of Esslingen in Baden-Württemberg. The summit of the almost perfectly formed cone mountain rises almost 200 m above the immediate surroundings.
Striking is the structure of the vegetation: the summit is covered with grasslands and some solitary linden trees. Below this there is a zone with scrub forest, on the southern slope with vineyards, and at the lower mountain slopes extensive orchards.

It should be noted that the Limburg is a former volcanic vent, which stopped when the surrounding softer Jura stone was eroded by erosion.
Already 215 BC BC, the mountain was populated by a Celtic tribe. The Zähringergeschlecht built a castle here around 1050/60. They later moved their headquarters to Badische.

One of the most beautiful "mountains" in the area. All-round view of the 3 Kaiser Mountains, Schurwald, Neckar Valley and the Filder plain.
Unfortunately, only a few stones remain from the original castle. A little below the summit is the "Kindlesbrunnen". Limburg was inhabited a long time ago and therefore also has a historical touch. In addition, on some nights you can hear the snorting of the kite from Limburg ;-)
