We did not attend the bird show, instead concentrating on the museum and climbing to the top of the old tower. This late medieval hilltop castle overlooks the Neckar river valley below. The castle was never destroyed and has been inhabited continuously for almost 800 years, since the mid-15th century from the line Gemmingen-Guttenberg - the Barons of Gemmingen. Great... More

Excellent show! Birds fly right over your head! Some of the birds are so ugly only a mother could claim them! We told the people that were doing the show that we didn't speak much German so they explained everything in english. You have to let them know!

Bird show (but only in German), everything about becoming knights etc. Interesting exhibit. I didn't watch the show but the museum was well presented. Had to buy an English booklet to read the despriptions written on the walls. On their website, they say they have hay-bed hotel. I wanted to try staying there, but we decided to move on to... More

We went there with our 5-year old while we were touring Baden-Wurttemberg and staying with our German friends who told us about this castle and the bird sanctuary in the first place. (Otherwise I doubt that we would ever come across it.) It is a very scenic drive getting to this place. I am sure the entire castle is beautiful... More

We drove by here while traveling on the Neckar River looking at all the castles along the way. We happened to get here right when the bird show was starting so we paid the extra money and watched the show. It was great! Birds from all over the world and the show was entertaining and lasted right around and hour.... More

Burg Guttenberg proved again to be worth a trip. To get there you drive along the Neckar valley, either coming from Heidelberg or Heilbronn, and the drive is very scenic with many castles and beautiful villages and towns along the way, such as Bad Wimpfen. Being in a bit of a rush, we decided to focus on the spectacular and... More

Burg Guttenberg is very pleasant and quiet, due to it's location. The castle museum is very quaint and full of interesting objects, however all information about the objects is in German; which was ok for me, being able to read German quite well, but my friend doesn't, which could cause a problem for some people. The view from the top... More
