Weinheim

Much of the city with the two castles is unique. The historic market square with its Mediterranean flair, the picturesque Gerberbachviertel with the small half-timbered houses or the castle Windeck and Wachenburg on the hills above the city.  However, the unique "Green Footprints" in the heart of the city with palace gardens, exotic woods and the Hermannshof garden invite you to let your mind wander. In the 900 years ago built Windeck Castle and the 1907 to 1928 built Wachenburg Castle you can be pampered by the hospitality industry.
