Rimbach — Fresh Fruits and Nuts In The Odenwald

When fruit is the way to your heart, Rimbach (Odenwald) is the ultimate town for you.

Located just a half hour north of Heidelberg in the Odenwald or Oden Forest, Rimbach is most famous for all its apple orchards and a lot of other juicy fruits and regional foods you can imagine.

Figures, I have to write this and I’m starving (Honey, can you bring me something to eat, please?).

On the chance you’re reading this hungry, you better get something to eat before finishing this page. ;-)

A big thanks goes out to the Romans who brought pears to the area more than a thousand years ago. Now there are apple, cherry, plum, almond, and walnut orchards all over the place.

Over there the winery (which you need to call ahead if you want to visit) holds an apple harvest every autumn. Yeah to the apple!

As if all this fruit isn’t enough to keep you going, locally made cheese and cider cake are pretty popular around here — not to mention totally delicious.

Being well-fed you’ve got no excuse not to see the rest of Rimbach. It doesn’t matter if you’re here to party at the Nicholas Party in early December or enjoy the festivities of the Rimbescher Kerwe, a church festival in early May.

June brings on the Pfingsmarkt and the there’s both Autumn (September) and Spring Festivals.

On the off chance that you’re here and there isn’t a festival going on (or, even if there is) make sure you see the Evangelical Church and former synagogue.

Rimbach is also where you’ll find the Geo-Naturpark Bergstra├če-Odenwald. A good idea is to take fruit out with you for a nice picnic break, then get yourself moving again on the circular walking trails or hiking paths.

You go on ahead, I’m still hungry so I’ll just sit right under an apple tree and wait for a couple to fall so I can eat ’em enlightenedly.
