Then we will cross over the river to Neckar Steinach, known as the, 'Town of 4 Castles'. This pretty little town, right on the banks of the River Neckar, is special for having 4 Castles. 2 of them are ruins which we can inspect first-hand and learn about their old history. The town also has delightful little local museum and a first-class tea shop.
