Great views
Aug 2019 • Family
Great, friendly staff who speak good english. We had a room in the tower over looking Heppenheim and the valley beyond.

The room was spacious with en suite. We even had 8 beds between 4 of us.

The food was basic but lovely and fresh. The evening meal included salad, bread, cooked meats and hot dogs. The breakfast was cooked meats, cereal, breads, yoghurt and fruit.

Theres a bar close by and you can walk around the grounds but the walk into town (which we didn't do) is a long walk downhill.

Do it

We went the hard way and took the steep off road trails on the way up. On the way down we followed the winding Cobblestone road, and that's much easier. Breathtaking views all along the way, and at the summit there's a lovely biergarten. All in it's a committent of maybe 2 hours, depending how long you want to linger. Can't recommend this enough on a clear day.

After a steep climb a nice view over the Rhine valley

The subject says it all - almost. There is a Biergarten next the the castle, open from 14:00. If you are doing a trail along the Bergstrasse - don't miss it. Within the main building there is also a hostel - so if you are in to such lodging, you might want to check for it.

another one of the castles along the Bergstrasse
Oct 2016 • Friends
This is another of the many castles and ruins of medival castles located on the hilltops along the Bergstrasse, It houses a youth hostle and a restaurant, where you can get a drink after a long walk up the hill. If you prefer to simply take the car, this is also possible,with free parking close to the top.
Why not take the opportunity to combine a visit with one of the astronomical observatory, which is also located in the close vicinity.

Amazing view of Heppneheim and the surrounding area
Jun 2016 • Couples
The views from Starkenburg are amazing. You will be able to appreciate Heppenheim much better from here. The views from the Rhine river valley are very nice as well and the views towards the mountains to the east are beautiful as well. The walk is worth the effort.

Great view on the way to the Castle

You must do this hike for the view that it offers on the way to the Castle. There are one or two eating options on top.

Nice hike
Nov 2015 • Family
Probably the best thing about making it to the top is the views. There are several hikes you can take, anything from just doing the hill, to a 10-mile round trip from the base of the hill. The vineyards are lovely.

Lovely old castle

The view is superb on a clear day. A demanding walk up and easier walk down through steep vineyards.
