How many of you out there really don’t like hot, sticky summer weather? Anyone? Anyone? You? Well, good news then as you get to keep the town of Neuenbürg in the Northern Black Forest in the state of Baden-Württemberg all to yourself.
All right, not all to yourself since 7,000+ people already live here, but you get my point. ;-)
What’s the weather got to do with it? Easy, the average summer temperature in Neuenbürg hottest months of July & August is only about 24°C. That’s about 75.2°F… in the summer!
Neuenbürg — Top Areas Of Interest
Not hot enough for a hurricane, and barely warm enough to break a sweat while you’re out sightseeing, hiking the Nature Reserve Eyachtal, or playing a game of tennis and miniature golf.
Hmm, I said Aldingen was a slice of Heaven — I think you’ve found another piece of it. ;-)
Oh yeah, sightseeing — that’s what you’re here for. One stop should definitely be Schlossruine Neunenbürg. It was an 11th century medieval castle, but it was destroyed during the Thirty Years’ War. The owners rebuilt it in the 17th century, and it’s now a branch of the Baden State Museum.
Not every castle in the area of Neuenbürg was rebuilt. Castle Waldenburg lies in ruins too, and sadly not much is known about this particular schloss (when it was built, etc). Experts do know that it was a fortress, a palace, and had a chapel; plus a bronze artifact found here is now in Stuttgart’s Landesmuseum.
Castle Staubenhardt suffered the same fate as Waldenburg, as this too is a ruin. The difference being, this castle was built in the 11th century and destroyed in 1384.
Yeah, thanks for bringing up the 1300s. This is when the paintings at Neuenbürg’s St. George Church were done. The church’s interior isn’t a grandiose Baroque affair — no, this is a simple, unassuming church with medieval artwork. Stunning, I would say.
If the weather in Neuenbürg didn’t make this place perfect for ya, the sights and countryside certainly would do it instead. Don’t you think?
