Neuer-Burg Castle Route


Share content:

The Neuer-Burg Castle Route (“Neuer-Burg-Weg”) is perfect for anyone wanting to follow the traces of the Middle Ages. It takes you around Neuerburg castle on romantic rocky paths. The impressive building forms a powerful ensemble with the Saint Nicholas parish church, the bell tower and the current rectory - formerly the bailiff’s house. The axe tower, formerly a watchtower, and the path that still runs along an old defensive wall are relics of the Middle Ages. The tour offers wonderful views into the Enz valley and the heart of the picturesque little town of Neuerburg. The colourful town park directly on the Enzbach stream is a good place to stop and relax. The market place is the start and finishing point of this tour, with places to eat.
