Mittelburg castle, one of the four castles above Neckarsteinach, was probably built around 1165 by Conrad I of Steinach, the youngest son of Bligger II of Steinach. The castle was rebuilt into a Renaissance palace in the 16th century and Gothicized in the 19th century. Nowadays it is a home to the von Warsberg-Dorth family

The castles provide a spectacular view over the Neckar river. The best one is the Hinterburg, the Mittelburg has no access because it is in private ownership. The Schadeck castle was also closed. Parking lot is beneath the path leading to the Hinterburg.

Not open to public! Only for events. You can not see anything inside. To bad that from 4 castels only 2 can be visited.

Nice but private, so no access to the grounds.

Amazing view and great place for hiking. It is one of the four castles/towers along hiking route. Tower is still in good condition and you can climb to see the river as well as the city.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
