Der Rappenhof***s
Hotel & Gutsgaststätte


The Rappenhof on a 60-years tradition in the gastronomy. An institution in the Weinsberg valley, it has managed the balancing act between its idyllic location in the midst of vineyards and an almost direct motorway connection.

Inside and outside guests enjoy the spectacular view from the Rappenhof across the valley and town of Weinsberg up to the ruins of Weibertreu Castle, which became famous through the legend of the "Loyal Wives of Weinsberg".
The hotel is an ideal starting point for hikes, bike rides as well as wine tastings in the "Swabian Tuscany". The restaurant is certified for organic products and selected wines and last but not least with vineyards as far the eye can see.
Just a few steps away take a walk through the vineyard to the ruins of Weibertreu Castle. On the way there you should stop and visit the home of the Weinsberg poet Justinus Kerner, doctor and poet of the Romantic era.
