The town of Langenburg
The City Langenburg and its history
Situated in the heart of the Hohenlohe region and in the particularly scenic central Jagst valley, the small town of Langenburg, which was first mentioned in 1226 as “Langenburg castrum et oppidum”, has been a popular tourist destination and climatic health resort since the 1950s.
The historic old town with its gate tower, parish church, town hall and its “Carl-Julius-Weber-Stube”, vicarage, “Steinhaus” and other civil servants’, courtiers’ and citizens’ houses brings earlier times to life and invites you to take an extensive walk or a guided tour of the town.
The mausoleum of the princely family, which lies just outside the town centre, the excavation museum and the crypt in the suburb of Unterregenbach (the so-called “Riddle of Regenbach”), as well as the important frescoes and a precious epitaph in the Evang. church in Bächlingen.
