The moated castle is located at the southern outskirts of the Odenwald, perfectly embedded into a lovely hilly landscape, near the romantic valley of the river Neckar and not far from the famous city of Heidelberg.
The distance to the nearby towncenter of Mosbach with its impressive half timbered buildings is only 6 km (3.5 miles)
If you follow the river downstream heading to Heidelberg the road will take you to many more castles and beautiful villages through endless unspoilt woods of the Odenwald. Going the other way towards Heilbronn, you will soon see the numerous wine-growing districts.
Many years ago, when we discovered this complex, which was pretty abandoned and not inhabitated in these times, we discarded all initial worries and started taking action to revitalize this lovely spot.
Such kind of places have their own magic, history and stories. The giant construction challenge, coming with considerable costs, could get accomplished eventually only with the active support of the state run bureau for memorial care.
Nowadays, the complex comprises majorily condominiums, partly rented out. Beyond this, further rooms best suited for guestrooms, seminars, celebrations and other events were built in the five buildings of the complex.
A special attraction for residents and visitors of this complex is its large premises with all its cosy spots amidst this species-rich garden and park.
