An Adventurous Afternoon at the Forest Climbing Park Hohenlohe-Langenburg

An Adventurous Afternoon at the Forest Climbing Park Hohenlohe-Langenburg

June 07, 2017

I’ve previously mentioned that I spent a weekend at my German friend, Lena’s hometown in Künzelsau, and shared about our day trip to Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Today, you’ll be reading about my tree-top adventures at Langenburg, which is just a mere 30 minutes drive away from Künzelsau.

The free Lords of Langenburg, documented in 1201, were closely related to the Lords of Hohenlohe. After the Langenburgs died out, the Hohenlohe family inherited the possessions. Therefore, Langenburg came under the rule of Hohenlohe and remained part of the Principality for the next centuries. Since 1568, Langenburg was the residency of the county and latter principality Hohenlohe-Langenburg. In the 17th century, Langenburg was the site of witch trials, where the last victims, Anna Schmieg and Barbara Schleicher, were executed in 1672.

Fast forward to today, you’ll come across one of Germany’s Renaissance-style castles. The courtyard is simply charming! However, Lena and I gave the castle a miss, and plucked up lots of courage to challenge ourselves at the forest climbing park. You can swing from tree to tree like Tarzan, or dash across wobbly bridges many feet above the ground. There are even zip lines with breathtaking views of Langenburg Castle, as well as, flying fox activities. You can experience 8 different climbing courses ranging between heights of 1 to 17 meters. I personally have a fear of heights, but this was a great experience for me.

Why not begin your day here, work up a good sweat, before you tuck into a feast? Other than the forest climbing park and the castle, you can also check out a vintage car museum that’s nearby. Hope you’ll have a wonderful time!
