The mountainous district of Ziegelhausen lies to the east of the city and, together with neighboring Schlierbach, forms the "gateway to the Neckar Valley".

The idyllic landscape between the mouths of Mausbach, Steinbach, and Bärenbach, makes Ziegelhausen a popular destination for excursions. In addition to the lookout point Kanzlerblick in a magnificent panoramic location, the Benedictine monastery Stift Neuburg with its own brewery and the textile museum Max Berk are particularly worth seeing.
Writers such as Stefan George, Hermann Hesse, Thomas Mann, and Rainer Maria Rilke were guests here and were inspired. The composers' Johannes Brahms and Carl Maria von Weber, who had the inspiration for his opera "Der Freischütz" in Ziegelhausen, can also be mentioned in the same breath.
