Guttenberg Castle (Burg Guttenberg), Hassmersheim

4.5
Admire the perfectly preserved medieval architecture and the scenic surroundings of the Neckar valley at Guttenberg Castle (Burg Guttenberg). Dating back to the 12th century, this structure is one of just a handful that has never been destroyed, and also boasts the distinction of having belonged to the same family for over 500 years. As you pass the outer ramparts and enter the castle, you'll be transported to the Middle Ages at the on-site museum. Learn about the history of knighthood and have a seat in the medieval tavern, where you'll be served by maidens and squires in authentic costumes. One of the site's main attractions is the bird show staged twice a day, when trained vultures, eagles, and other birds of prey circle over the towers. You can marvel at the feathered creatures up close at the castle's aviary. There's a separate fee for each attraction, but you can buy a combined ticket at a reduced price.

  • Goods here with friends when the vacuumed. Knights meal - the food was very fine! Well seasoned, great spices. The potato soup in the bread served was super, the roast then as well, fine cakes for dessert - all just a culinary delight! Framework programme was also fun (with Herold). We liked it, we come back safely. For this purpose, the location is cozy. All around great, 1A!

  • This castle is still well preserved. However many original parts are no longer as originally received the Castle as a result. Much has been renewed in very strongly. It's worth visiting this plant anyway. Here something located very nicely above the River makes this castle. More castles and ruins, which is absolutely worth a visit are still much in this area.

  • We were on the Burg Guttenberg yesterday and have spent a beautiful day with the Combi-ticket on the Burg Guttenberg. We first visited the Museum (including a magnificent view from the Tower), then we have taken part in the screening of animals and have admired then the Aviary. And the presentation was very entertaining and informative! Very well, I has noticed that the animals have made a healthy and clean impression and also all Aviary / cage were kept very clean. Between Museum, demonstration, and visit the Aviary we have visited also the Castle Tavern, to quench our thirst and hunger. Here too, I can say that everything is very well done, the food was delicious, the service fast and fits the price-performance ratio. A very nice destination - I can recommend happy all in all.

  • Very nice place to spend your time. A lovely place for the family, and the restaurant has quality food and the atmosphere is great.
  • A fantastic day out. The combination of great views, the historic castle and museum would be plenty to recommend it but then an amazing bird show as well makes it a really special place to visit. I am Australian who lived nearby for a few years and took all our overseas visitors there. We have been there more than a dozen times.
  • There is so much to explore here! Burg Güttenburg is a wonderful place to spend an afternoon walking around and enjoying the walkways and vistas of a very nice castle. The bird show was fantastic! It was great to see such amazing birds both up close and in flight. The drive to the Burg was also very scenic (as are most road trips in Germany).
  • Well done bird of prey show. In German, but still very interesting for non German speakers. The Castle itself is a museum and the view for the top of the tower is worth the climb. Great afternoon for the family. There is also nice restaurant/cafe with great views of the valley.
  • Most beautiful place on the Earth
