Der Rappenhof***s - Hotel and BIO-Restaurant


The Rappenhof looks back at more than 60 years of gastronomic tradition. An institution in the valley of Weinsberg which perfectly manages to find a balance between the idyllic location in the middle of vineyards and almost directly connecting to the motorway.

Inside as well as outside one can enjoy the incredible view from the Rappenhof over the valley and the city of Weinsberg up to the ruin Weibertreu, which has become famous through the legend of the "Loyal Wives of Weinsberg". The country hotel serves as an ideal point of departure for hikes, bike tours and wine tastings in the "Swabian Tuscany". The organic-certified restaurant spoils with the best Swabian cuisine and selected wines and - last but not least - with vineyards as far as the eye can see.
Within only a few steps you can take a walk through the vineyards to the "Weibertreu" Castle ruins and on your way you can visit the house of the doctor and Romantic poet Justinus Kerner.
