    Hirschhorn lies at the south border of the Odenwald, a nature park. Next to the Hirschhorn castle there are some walking paths leading into the woods. One takes about half an hour and the other about 1.5 hours. The paths are easy to walk.

    A typical German wine and beer pub. A cossy little place with dark wood where you can have something to eat or just enjoy a drink.

    During night time you can sit downstairs in the vaulted cellar, during day time there is a room on ground level. There is also a pastry shop for your afternoon coffee and delicious German cake.

    Their speciality is sweet and meal pancakes.

    Hirschhorn is built within the walls of the castle. This city wall is still almost intact. As there was not much space between the hill and the river, some houses are even built on the wall instead of inside.

    Hirschhorn is named after the owners of the castle: the Lords of Hirschhorn. They developed the town and granted city rights in 1391. The city arms shows a jumping deer. (Hirsch).

    The sculpture on the pic can be found at the beginning of the Hauptstrasse, on your left hand side when going towards the castle.

    Favorite thing: Hirschhorn is a lovely medieval town. It's very romantic just to wander along the narrow alleys where there are many half-timbered houses. There is one main street (Hauptstrasse) that leads to a Protestant Church and town hall in the market square. Beyond the square, there's a street towards a Catholic church and convent before reaching the castle.
