Enjoy the landscape and the olde worlde timber framed houses at the centre of Neidenstein.

Between the hills of the Kraichgauer Hügelland and the Kleine Odenwald lies the fortress village of Neidenstein. A superbly developed network of cycle tracks and footpaths – such as the Neidenstein Obstbaumlehrpfad (fruit tree nature trail) at Alte Schneiz – takes nature lovers through the Neckartal-Odenwald nature park and along the Schwarzbach river. Neidenstein’s main landmark is the romantic castle built on a rocky spur in the 13th century. It is still owned by the Venningen family to the present day. Neidenstein has activities and celebrations
run by the numerous local societies, of which the most well-known is the Altortfest. The narrow alleyways around Altort are well worth a look, with their half-timbered houses, buildings going back to the Renaissance, a baroque church as well as the Patrician houses just below the manor, where they now form the Local Heritage Museum. And of course the local cuisine
at the restaurants is something not to be missed.
