If idyllic villages, romantic landscapes, charming small towns and villages with half-timbered houses, and strong four seasons are your cup of tea then head over to the Neckar-Odenwald-Kreis — a district made for unforgettable moments.
A couple highlights are the town of Buchen with its town center of the middle ages, its Town Hall and other baroque buildings, and the Eberstadter Tropfsteinhöhle, a dripstone cave that attracts visitors from all South Germany.
Then there’s Zwingenberg with its Schlossfestspiele (Castle Festivals), a cultural highlight taking place every year in August.
And Walldürn is also worth to mention since it’s a Catholic Pilgrimage, attracting more than 150,000 people into town every year.
Besides, the district has two more cultural highlights… one of which are the Neckar-Odenwald-Tage. They are celebrated in various towns and villages during the end of September until beginning of October.
The other is a Special Day called Natürlich Mobil, taking place on the third Sunday in June providing fun for young and old on 34km (21mi) along the highway B 27 between Heilbronn and Mosbach.
