Sightseeing Tips

A variety of destinations for day-trips are easily accessible from the Feriendorf, for example, Heidelberg, Michelstadt, Erbach, Heilbronn or the castles along the river Neckar. The Rhein-Neckar Arena offers many events suitable to all weather conditions. Time flies while having fun at the Auto- und Technikmuseum Sinsheim, a visit to the Eberstadt cave, in the visitors’ salt mine Bad Friedrichshall or in the Greifvogelwarte (bird of prey observation point) Guttenberg. A visit to the Castle Theater Festival in Zwingenberg with the performances of the Freischütz (The Marksman) remains an unforgettable experience.

A few recommendations:

The Heidelberg Castle and its extensive palace garden is an absolute visitor magnet and the number one sight in Heidelberg. The city is literally steps away as visitors look down from the green terraces and viewpoints of the castle on the red roofs of the old town and the Neckar. You can reach the castle either by foot using one of the many paths or with the mountain railway.

Back down in the city, you can admire the variety of historic buildings, impressive monuments and imaginative fountains while strolling through the beautiful pedestrian zone.

Heidelberger Castle

Michelstadt was mentioned for the first time in 741 AD. The narrow streets of the picturesque old town are lined with half-timbered (Fachwerk) houses. The town hall, built in 1484, is one of the most original half-timbered buildings in Germany. It was built in late Gothic style. Visitors can find it directly in the old town market square. Just around the corner from the market square, you will find the Rathausbräu . We recommend enjoying one of their locally brewed beers directly from the barrel along with local culinary specials. After a hearty meal you can enjoy a digestive shot from their distillery.

Eberbach lies in the Neckar valley in the middle of the nature park Neckartal-Odenwald and on the romantic Castle Road. The castle ruins of Eberbach above the town on one of the hills of the Odenwald was an important medieval castle that was destroyed already in 1403 and was not reopened until the beginning of the 20th century. The historic old town, which is today largely a pedestrian zone, has four well-preserved towers of the medieval town fortifications: the Pulverturm, for example, was erected in the 15th century as a two-winged corner tower on the older corner fortification of the medieval city wall from the 13th century .
