Hornberg castle

Surrounded by vineyards, the knight’s castle Hornberg - built in 11th century - rises proudly above the romantic Neckar Valley.
Get enchanted by the charm of a historic castle in combination with the quality of outstanding gastronomy.

Just below Castle Hornberg, the most famous castle on the river Neckar, the flourishing vines belonging to the vineyard of the same name advance in serried ranks up the hillside. The Burg Hornberg vineyard goes back at least 1500 years. It is mentioned in a document dating from 1184 which bears the seal of Kunrad (von Hohenstaufen) Pfalzgraf bei Rhein, but archaeological remains discovered on the Hornberg site suggest that it was the Romans who first introduced wine-growing along the Neckar.
