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.
