The Wartberg Hill is one of the Heilbronn viniculture locations. The first mention of wine-growing on the Wartberg Hill was in a document from 1146. It was called “the north mountain overgrown with wine”.
The Heilbronn Wartberg Hill is not only a wine-growing area but also offers great views over Heilbronn. On the mountain, in addition to the Swabian restaurant “Restaurant am Wartberg” and the wine-growing museum “Schaufenster unter den Arkaden”, there is also the opportunity to climb the Wartberg tower.
The widely visible light sculpture “Sonnenstrahl für Heilbronn”, by the Dutch artist Jan van Munster, has lit up with the city colours on the roof of the tower since 2002; white during the day then red and blue at night.
The most beautiful way to reach the Wartberg Hill is over the Wine Panorama Path and the sculpture path, which leads through the middle of the wine countryside and exposes the wine-growing. The historical wine press at the foot of the Wartberg Hill is also worth seeing. The start of the Heilbronn grape harvest takes place every year in September.
The Wartberg is also accessible by public transport or car (via B39 in the direction of Weinsberg, signpost “Wartberg”)
