Neckargemünd Travel Tip:
Bergfeste Dilsberg is a castle on a mountain over the Neckar River in Neckargemünd, Germany. The castle was built by the counts of Lauffen in the 12th century. In the 13th century it became the main castle for the counts. In the 14th century it became part of the Electorate of the Palatinate and received Stadtrecht in 1347. During the Thirty Years War, the castle was considered impregnable until imperial forces under Tilly took the castle in 1622 after a long siege. In 1799, French forces tried and failed to storm the castle. A 46-metre deep well helped keep the defenders supplied during this assault. In the 19th century the castle fell to ruin. The castle was used more as a quarry. Today the castle and its town is a tourist attraction and is administered by the Staatlichen Schössern und Gärten Baden-Württemberg, attracting thousands of visitors.
