Leisure tips

An excellent location!

Weinheim is located on the (No Suggestions) ("Mountain Road") at the edge of the metropolitan region of Mannheim, Ludwigshafen and Heidelberg. The town is situated at the heart of an extensive wine and fruit-growing region. The picturesque old part of town with its historical market square and town hall and the Renaissance palace and gardens along with the adjoining exotic woods are worth seeing.

Above the town rise Wachenburg Castle and the ruins of Windeck Castle.

The youth hostel is in Weinheim's sport and leisure centre, close to the town centre.
