Breuberg — Sky Dive To A Mysterious Castle

If you’re able to tear yourself away from the Frankenstein Castle in nearby Mühltal, I’d recommend coming to see Breuberg Castle in the town that bears its name.

Um, that would be Breuberg, not Castle. ;-)

Anyway, Breuberg does have more than just its 12th century castle that’s now part museum and part restaurant, which is open from the middle of March to the middle of October. Plenty of time to come see this 850 year old Burg, wouldn’t you say?

Another castle to see is the Mühlhäuser Schlößchen. Or, I should say what remains of the castle which you’ll find in the outlying forest. Funny, not much was ever written about the castle, so no one is too sure when it even was built.

Take that, Frankenstein, Breuberg’s got a historical and mysterious castle too.

The historical buildings in Breuberg don’t end at its castles. You really should get a gander at the 16th century Evangelical Church (that used to be a 15th century military church) that now has a Baroque interior.

Since I’ve been talking about the historical side of Breuberg, seems like a good time to mention the Historical Market that the town holds every two years (odd-numbered years, in case you’re wondering).

Every year there are a number of other festivals in town. October is a really big month for going-ons. That’s when there’s the Pumpkin Festival (yummy pumpkin pie), the Book Market, and the Wine Festival.

Castles. Wine. What else could make Breuberg any better? How about tennis, fishing, Nordic Walking trails, swimming, a Geo Park, and sky diving?

Not enough? OK, throw in a chance to do some rock climbing on the Klettersteig (which used to be an old quarry), and you’ve got yourself the best time ever.

You’ll probably be a bit tired after all that activity, so either spend the night at the youth hostel that used to be a castle, or do it in a tent at the local campground. The choice is yours.

But aren’t you glad you chose to come here in the first place?
