  • beautifully situated and with restaurant and kiosk. Terrace unfortunately too small especially in fine weather. Warning towers but first specially value: knee-unfriendly (well. see built)

  • A few km north of Bensheim, in the village of Auerbach, don't hesitate to take the road that goes to this castle. The castle is partially ruined but fairly well preserved and restored to allow a visit from the towers, with beautiful view on the hills of the Odenwald and Bensheim and plain pumpernickel.

  • Auerbach Castle is situated about Auerbach and is very medieval. Well maintained and nicely renovated. Always worth a visit!

  • Nice place to visit. No problem with parking. Great view from the restaurant terrace but, as with most German establishments, too many tables squeezed into the available space. Food was good but not worth the trip if eating is your only goal...pretty expensive for the portions served. The house Weizenbier was tasty. Service was good and friendly.
  • Fantastic castle with great views. Interesting how there is a 300 year old tree on the wall and no one knows why. The drive up was a lot of fun too.
  • Do the feast. Entertaining and yummy. You will have to eat with your hands though.
  • If you visit Darmstadt, you will have to visit this one! Great view over the Rhine valley and absolutely lovely food. Watch the sunset from one of the towers and fall in love with the area.
  • It was awesome! I loved the views and the photo ops were amazing! A great hideaway we saw off in the distance and it was worth the drive! I loved it! Nobody was there but I'd love to ho back someday. (We went Christmas 2003.)
