The fact that Teningen is on the edge of the Black Forest is a dead giveaway that the surrounding area is utterly amazing. But, there’s more in this area than just eye candy.
Teningen has four local parts and each has a history and story unique onto itself. Over at the Local History Museum you’re bound to get a better appreciation for what you’re about to see around town.
But, what most people come to see are the castle ruins. Burg Landeck is one of them and you can see where nature is starting to reclaim where this 13th century Schloss was built. A few of the original fireplaces are still visible in the Upper Castle, whereas it’s the castle’s chapel that’s easy to make out in the Lower Castle.

Burg Nimburg is another castle that lies in ruins. It’s sad that all that remains of this castle is its original ditch from when it was built in 1052.
Nimburg does have a lovely Mountain Church that’s still standing. And there are other beautifully decorated churches in the three other hamlets, including the Protestant Church in Köndringen.
Of course, Teningen has a few local guesthouses and inns for anyone wishing to stay a few nights in the area. It’ll sure feel like a good idea after a day of riding around the many Black Forest cycling trails. You’ll probably be just as worn out after a few hours of Nordic Walking, or just hiking on regular old walking paths.
If it’s summer, there are quite a few summer music concerts to enjoy; just another excuse to stay right here in town. Maybe a night at the the Hotel Rebstock that’s close to town and whose restaurant serves real rustic cuisine and fine wine is just the right place to end a day in Teningen.
Food, wine, culture, nature, and history; no way is Teningen just eye candy — it’s got substance!
