March 24, 2021
Idyllic forests, green meadows and the leisurely flowing Neckar - the Staufer Castle Tour near Bad Wimpfen has the full program. And to make the 19-kilometer tour even more varied, stately castles are still waiting for you. The tour starts at the train station in Bad Wimpfen, which is by the way the only neo-Gothic train station in southern Germany.
At the beginning you hike comfortably along the Neckar downstream. Shortly after the outdoor pool, turn left into the forest, the path climbs gently. You walk through Heinsheim and can make a stop at the mountain church. Then it goes uphill through shady forest and romantic vineyards to the Guttenberg hilltop castle. In the museum you can find out more about the history of the castle, in the restaurant you can refresh yourself and enjoy the view over the Neckar valley.
Now the path leads you down to the Fünfmühlental. You follow the Mühlbach, walk past a game reserve and a barbecue area - and of course the mills. Soon you will see the silhouette of Bad Wimpfen in front of you, the goal has been reached. Before you return to the train station, it is worth taking a tour of the historic old town with its museums and restaurants.
