The Baden-Wurttemberg region
Alongside historic cities such as Heidelberg, Freiburg or Tübingen, it is the carefully tended villages and the urban town centres which paint the true character of Baden Wuerttemberg. Great importance is attached to hospitality, and the people of Germany's southwest have a tremendous capacity for celebration and enjoyment. This love of life is reflected in the many wine and town festivals, fairs and street parties held all around the region. Different, but by no means less enjoyable, ways to spend leisure time are provided by a wide selection of parks and adventure pools, leisure centres, wildlife reserves and zoos, museums, working mills and mines, as well as monuments and memorials.
Heidelberg is a world-famous city and perennial tourist favorite with a justified international and national reputation as one of Germany's top tourist destinations. The city's urban development, its university life, many fine restaurants, shopping opportunities, cultural offerings and wide variety of annual events all contribute to the worldwide popularity of the city which even Goethe felt had something "quite ideal".
It is the blend of different, thoroughly contrasting characteristics that harmonize to make Heidelberg a fascinating and unique place. The charm of this interplay has inspired artists, stimulated scientists and is an unforgettable experience for all visitors to the city.
The town of Neckargemünd is situated at a distance of 10 km from the city of Heidelberg, upstream in the Neckar valley and in the middle of a vacation area which is part of the Neckar-Odenwald forest national park.
Also dubbed “Heidelberg’s beautiful sister”, Neckargemünd is located where the Elsenz stream joins the River Neckar. With its picturesque location, embedded in deciduous and coniferous forest, Neckargemünd is most popular not only as a residence but also as a holiday resort. Being well equipped with numerous sports- and recreational facilities, the town also features a lively cultural scene with local clubs contributing to a wide range of different activities.
See the old town centre, steeped in its 1000 year old history. Alleys, corners and numerous splendid half-timbered houses from the middle ages, the historic town wall as well as Reichenstein castle all bear witness to an eventful past. Dilsberg castle is most famous, catching the visitor’s eye from a distance.
A museum sheltered inside the old town hall depicts the history of Neckar shipping.
Apart from a wide range of cultural activities, the town along with its surrounding area also offers a host of destinations for cyclists and hikers. You will just love boat trips on the River Neckar, giving you appetite to use the town’s hotel- and restaurant facilities. Experience Neckargemünd as a starting point to discover the “Neckartal Odenwald forest” national park, the “Kraichgau” and “Kurpfalz” region, not to mention the “Burgenstrasse” (castle road) and of course the romantic town of Heidelberg.
