Yes. The castle has a Renaissance chapel.
Golf reigns supreme at this lovely Renaissance castle on a small hilltop in the Neckar Valley. Even if you aren’t an aficionado of the game, you can still enjoy the first-class facilities here.
Guest rooms are modernized, comfortable, and in perfect keeping with the castle’s aristrocratic origins. Views are of the golf course, the vineyards, or the forest.
The restaurant “Lazuli” is one of the best in the area and offers gourmet fare. If you wish more regional style cooking, try the “Kurfürst” restaurant, and for easy meals after a heavy day of sightseeing or golf, a beer garden hits the spot.
