We came to Weinheim so I could visit my family. I haven't been there in 40 years, but it still had that special feeling from my childhood standing there looking at my hometown. It might be smaller than the others burgs, but the views are...More

A steep climb which rewards with nice views of the town and countryside. Take the kids up to the top of the tower.
