Reichenstein Castle in Neckargemünd was probably a Reichsburg built in the early 13th century. Together with other Reichsburgen in the lower Neckar region, it served to protect the Reichsterritrium compared to the Wittelsbach territory around Heidelberg. The castle is only mentioned from 1292 to 1355. From 1329 she was owned by the Elector of the Palatinate and then quickly lost in importance to the nearby mountain festival Dilsberg. The castle fell into the ruin from the 15th century at the latest and was almost completely removed. The castle stable learned numerous changes in the 19th and 20th centuries, so that only very few of the remains of the wall there are actually also to be addressed as the remains of the castle.

Dilsberg Castle is a ruined castle located in Neckargemünd, Germany. It was built by the counts of Lauffen in the 12th century, but in the 14th century became part of the Electorate of the Palatinate. The castle became an administrative center for the Electoral Palatinate and thus a target in the wars of the 17th and 18th centuries. In the 19th century, the castle fell into ruin and was used as a quarry. American writer Mark Twain visited the castle in the 1870s and wrote about it in A Tramp Abroad.
