Castle Berg is a ruined castle on the grounds of Mineralbad Berg near the Nesenbach stream in the eastern inner city district in the Baden-Württemberg state capitol of Stuttgart, Germany.

The castle was built by the von berg family during the 12th Century and then demolished in 1287, leaving nothing but the foundations that were unearthed in 1856 during construction of the spring water bathhouses. The foundations found belonged to a residence tower with a square base with a side length of 10.5 metres (34 ft) and a thickness of 3 meters.[1] By outdated Normalnull reckoning, Castle Berg is about 210 meters about Sea level.
