The 749-neck castle hotel Rhine-Neckar Rivers

Sightseeings in the city

Ruins of the medieval fortification

The castle park that belongs to the 749-neck is about 2.6 hectares big. It came into being after the drainage of an earlier swampy ground. A so-called Prachttor (magnificent gate) in Renaissance style, which was built by the master Adam Wagner, stands at the edge of the park. Even though it was integrated into the town wall here, it did not serve as a fortification gate, but as an entrance to the park.

A true element of the medieval fortification is the pentagonal tower, one of the fewer example of its kind, that is still completely preserved. With a height of 24 meters, it's also considered as the city's landmark. It dates back to the middle of the 15th century and was constructed in the course of the second urban expansion. As town towers lost their strategic relevancy, it obtained its half-timbered buildup and the polygonal roof in the early 18th century. Today, it serves as the club house of the Odenwald Forest club. Besides the "Schmitthennerstube" (a parlor room), there is also a local heritage museum inside.


The present Protestant city church was built between 1610 and 1612. It was built in late Renaissance style on the site of a chapel from the 14th century, but not much is known about it. Jakob Muller, who was from Heilbronn, was the church architect.

The so-called Totenkirche (the description of certain sacred buildings mainly used for funeral and memorial purposes) had its beginnings in a parish church consecrated in honour of John the Baptist and was mentioned for the first time in 1330. Originally built in romantic style, it underwent an expansion and gothic restructure in the 16th century.

Buildings worth seeig

The youngest of the three castles, Alexanderburg, was built during the end of the 14th, beginning of the 15th century and was named after Alexander of Helmstatt. The southern wall was part of the medieval town wall. After a variable history in the 19th and 20th century, it was converted into the present city hall in the course of the Old Town renovation. Further historical buildings are the former district exchange building, the former municipal court house as well as two superb half-timbered houses, namely the Renthaus and the tavern "Zum Lowen" ("At the Lion").

The most famous son of the city is Adolf Schmithenner (*1854), who described the countryside of his home town in a lot of his work. The Gymnasium school (similar to high school) is named after him.
