Pfedelbach is a town in the district of Hohenlohe in Baden-Württemberg in Germany.

Being regionally most popular for its famous Castle (`Das Wasserschloss´ in German) built from 1568 to 1572 and the `Fürstenfaß´ (= Prince's Barrel), Pfedelbach's history dates back far into the 11th century. Nowadays most of the surrounding smaller townships have been suburbanized to this town, including Oberohrn, Heuberg/Buchhorn/Gleichen (three small villages counting as one), Harsberg, Untersteinbach and Windischenbach to name but a few.

A special aspect about the early culture of Pfedelbach is the affiliation to an ancient language called Jenisch, or Yeniche in English.
