Weikersheim Travel Tip:
One of the highlights along the Romantic Road is Weikersheim Palace. It is the ancestral seat of the Hohenlohe family and considered a superb example of a country house and one of the most beautiful of the Hohenlohe residences. In the 16th century, Count Wolfgang II inherited Weikersheim after a division of estates and made it his main home. He had the moated castle converted into a magnificent Renaissance palace. Its splendidly furnished rooms have been preserved with their original furnishings, and the palace garden is watched over by more than 50 stone statues, including gnomes, dwarves and deities, as well as representations of the wind and other elements.
