Burg Hornberg****


The proud, 11th-century knight’s castle Hornberg rises high above the Neckar Valley with vineyards all around it. Experience a triad of tradition, incomparable venues and first class cuisine.

It was once home to the knight Gottfried von Berlichingen, also known as "Knight with the Iron Hand". For more than 400 years it has been home of the family von Gemmingen-Hornberg., who presents itself today as a host with heart and soul.
The enchantment of the historic walls surrounds the guests in many ways - in the romantic rooms, in the panorama-restaurant with far sight above the Neckar valley, on the beautiful viewing terrace or in the inner ward under the old chestnut.

Just a few steps away, the "Neckarsteig" high route calls to cultural and nature enthusiasts alike. This long-distance hiking trail from Heidelberg to Bad Wimpfen with a length of 126,4 km offers the possibility to explore the castles in the Neckar valley on foot.
