Free to visit and with a beautiful view over the bow in the Neckar
We take a stroll back in history, to the medieval castle ruins along the Neckar river. We can thoroughly recommend taking a 3-hour River Cruise up (and down) the river from Heidelberg. The first castle ruin you encounter on the river bend of the dramatic 4-castle town of Neckarsteinach is Burg Schadeck, also called Schwalbennest, or “Swallows’ Nest”.

Schadeck Castle is a rock castle ruin dating back to 1335 and the youngest of the four Neckarsteinach castles. It probably became a ruin as early as the late 15th century, and looks so picturesque, that it is the landmark of Neckarsteinach.

Unlike the other three castles of Neckarsteinach, it is not located on a mountain top, but down the steeply sloping mountain massif. It’s free to visit and particularly beautiful is the view over the bow in the Neckar, and the Dilsberg mountain fortress over on the other side.

Because we’re crazy about castles, we visited more than 20 of those in the southwest of Germany, in the region of Baden-Württemberg, covering about one third of the Castle Route. From gloomy ruins to boasting baroque, join us on a Castle Quest.
