Steinsberg Castle

Situated on a basalt cone between Sinsheim and Weiler is the Compass of Kraichgau: Steinsberg Castle, a major landmark in the area. This historic ambience invites you to enjoy a fascinating guided tour and a meal in the restaurant located in the former residential and servants’ sections of the castle. The chefs ensure that all food is perfectly fresh and sourced regionally. Moreover, true to knightly traditions, unforgettable moments at mediaeval events, knights’ banquets and festivities are also on offer. Furthermore, special arrangements can be made for weddings and conferences.

The castle, which was first mentioned in 1109, has had a chequered history in which it has frequently changed hands and has been expanded, destroyed and rebuilt. In 1973 it was purchased by Sinsheim Town Council, who have been responsible for its upkeep ever since.
