Welcome at Schlosshotel Horneck in Gundelsheim

Right next to the Neckar, in Gundelsheim, the beatiful castle Horneck is located. Owned by the Transylvanian Saxons, the castle was completely renovated in 2020 and converted into a cultural and meeting centre with a hotel garni, library and museum. Now it shines in new splendour and we’re looking forward to many guests.
