This is a beautiful castle. It's particularly stunning as you approach the area and you can see the castle from quite the distance away. Very beautiful. Watch out for other drivers as folks were stopping on the side of road (bad idea!) to take photos....More

We saw the castle earlier this year and returned for the tour. It was only in German, but we still enjoyed the tour! It was fun just to see what we could pick up with our limited German!

This castle is very impressive! We took the shuttle up for 2 euros (3.30 euros if you want to return as well). The rooms were amazing but there was no english tour available when we arrived (16:15h).

This castle is really big and up on a huge hill. You can see for miles from the top. It’s one of the best castles that I’ve been to and well worth the time.

Remember the fairy tale stories we heard as children. Well I'm pretty sure that this is where they came from. The castle is the ancestral home of the 1st Prussian emperor, from whom the British royal family is decended. It is still frequented by the...More

The castle is very pretty! We took the bus up, which is a small extra cost, but you can walk up as well. The parking spots are a little small, I struggled getting out. We also did the guided tour, which I was glad I...More

Hohenzollern Castle, to get to the top of the castle, either take the touristic van or walk.. I climbed the hill, be prepare to long stairs and steep trail roads. The view of the town is unforgettable.
