The 10 Best Things to Do in Weinheim, Germany

July 30, 2017 Renato Branum

 Weinheim (help·info) is a town in the north west of the state of Baden-Württemberg in Germany with 43,000 inhabitants, approximately 15 km (9 mi) north of Heidelberg and 10 km (6 mi) northeast of Mannheim. Together with these cities, it makes up the Rhine-Neckar triangle. It has the nickname "Zwei-Burgen-Stadt", or Two-Castle city ('Burg' means 'fortress'), named after the two fortresses on the hill overlooking the town in the east on the edge of the Odenwald, the Windeck and the Wachenburg. The city of Weinheim with said Wachenburg castle, built by German Student Corps fraternities in the early 1900s, is the location of the annual convention of the Weinheimer Senioren-Convent.

Schau- und Sichtungsgarten Hermannshof

Reviewed By geo3 - Calgary

I'm a gardener, so this was a destination, and a worthwhile one. It's really a teaching garden (there was a class of horticultural students there while I was visiting), but it's also beautiful. And the cost is certainly right (free).
Even for non-gardeners it would be worth a visit if you are already visiting the old town in Weinheim, since it is very close by.
A previous reviewer mentioned that this garden shows how 'prairie' gardening should be done. That showed up in the selection of plants - for example, things like Amsonias and Baptisias, which are native to North America but really aren't used all that much in Gardens here. It's worthwhile for North Americans to visit this garden just to get ideas for what can be used in our own Gardens.
The plant species are generally labelled somewhere, although since the plants are often repeated not every single plant is labelled.

Altstadt Heppenheim

Reviewed By Kukiliku - Amherst, Massachusetts

This is a very nice place to visit in Heppenheim. I stayed there for 3 days and walked through those houses. By the time I have been there, nit many people were around. All locals. Although it is a small town, people don't say hi to each other much. That was weird.
But over all nice small town to visit.

Badesee

Reviewed By Becky101090 - Willenhall, United Kingdom

A large, well-kept, open space with a beautiful lake and beach, as well as 2 small pools and recreational areas. It is reasonably priced to get in, cheaper if you buy tickets in bulk, as we did (with family over there they go regularly).
We spent two whole days there easily, it is great for young children as there is the choice of the swimming pool or the lake, and also opportunities to play in the sand.
There are a couple of food kiosks, average food served and I might say a little overpriced for what you get. You can also get drinks and ice cream too.
This place gets VERY busy when the weather is nice. There is plenty of shade under the trees but I would also take an umbrella just in case you can't find space under one of these, especially if you have children.
There are plenty of toilets dotted about and also lots of showers to rinse once you have been in the lake and the pool.

Sommerrodelbahn

Reviewed By claudiodeugenio - Oslo, Norway

It's great fun for the whole family. As you can use the break or let it go just as you want, the speed is always as high/low as you wish. You have some "bumpy", curvy, straight and loop parts, so the track feels varied. Children under 8 years are not allowed to ride on their own. There is a "Biergarten" and a playground, if you would like to take a break. There is also a "Kletterwald" close to the ride, which gives you a more demanding challenge, since it's all about climbing beside/between/in/on/onto/up trees. You find more information on www.sommerrodelbahn-wald-michelbach.de/

Automuseum Dr. Carl Benz

Reviewed By draygnol - NC USA

Carl Benz built the first automobile in a small workshop in Mannheim (destroyed WWII) not in this building. However, this was his first factory and it now contains a wonderful collection of automobiles and automobilia which will interest the whole family. Bertha Benz, Carl's wife, made the first "cross country" automobile trip and she receives her share of attention in this museum, too. A most enjoyable day out, and only a short walk from the train station. The Benz's elegant home is also worth visiting and is an easy, direct 10 minute walk away in the center of town.

Windeck Castle

Reviewed By saltacity - Weinheim, Germany

The “Windeck” is an old, mostly destroyed castle built in the early 12th century. It was meant to guard the town of Weinheim and surrounding properties. Its German name translates literally to “windy corner”. It was mostly destroyed by invading French troops in 1674 and never fully rebuilt. From the Terrace you have very beautiful views of the city of Weinheim. There is a restaurant and an open-air beer garden during summer. All in all a very recommendable spot for a drink / coffee or a simple meal.
