Weinheim is situated northwest of the southern German state of Baden-Wurttemberg, and is a city with approx. 43,000 inhabitants (2008). The distance sør-/sørvestover to the larger cities of Heidelberg and Mannheim is around 10-15 km.
Weinheim is often called “Zwei-Burgen-Stadt” because of the two castles that “monitors” the city. The oldest of them, Windeck, had been built in the 1100s, but heavily battered in 1674. Only in the 1960s, the entire system restored – and is now classified as a historical monument. Wachenburg is much younger. It was built during the 1900s’ first two decades – and today including a restaurant. Both castles are regarded as some of Weinhems main tourist attractions.
Otherwise, there are several attractions around the historic square Mark square in the center. Here you will find such Altes Rathaus (Old Town Hall) from 1557. It no longer has the Town Hall functions.

It previously belonged to the prince of Kurpfalz.
