Schriesheim Things to Do

    The Strahlenburg sits high on a hilltop in adorable Schriesheim. Ten months of the year it functions as a restaurant and tourist destination, but in January and February the ruins' interior is closed to visitors. (You can climb the tower for a small fee when the castle is open.) Thankfully there is ample parking, and the pathways in the surrounding vineyard are accessible year round (at your own risk of falling on ice, of course). An outlook in front of the castle provides a beautiful view of the town below. Dogs seem to be welcome on the trails and around the ruin, so long as you pick up after them, of course. I imagine this would be a wonderful place for a family outing in the warmer months. We even enjoyed it in the cold! ;)

    Back in the days of horse drawn carriages etc. it was common for the horses to kick and scratch the paintwork on the corner of some of the houses if they went around the corner too fast. Hence the introduction of scratching blocks, some of which are still in place today.

    Scratching blocks.....

    In centuries gone by, if you committed any sort of petty crime in Schriesheim, your punishment might be to be chained up to this post on market day so that all the townspeople could see you and know that you had broken the law. If you enlarge the photo you will see the manacle and chain on the post.

    Best behaviour or else.....

    You can catch Tram #5 from Bismarckplatz in Heidelberg and go right to the end of the line. When you alight from the tram walk to your right and you will soon see where to wander.

    This is a co-op operated by the winemakers in the district. Plenty of tasting to be done and a wide range of excellent wines on sale at very reasonable price. You can also buy some excellent home made jams also at very reasonable prices.

    What to buy: I recommend the Dornfelder Red (Trocken). Christine also recommends the Chilli jam.

    What to pay: My wine was about 4 Euro per bottle.

    The co-op.....
