Castle of Hohenzollern is home to a wealth of Prussian artifacts--including a letter from U.S. President George Washington thanking Baron von Steuben for his service in the American Revolutionary War. It's also the ancestral seat of the Hohenzollern family, who became German Emperors. The castle complex, chapels, and cellars can be explored independently. Look for the crown of Wilhelm II, plus King Frederick the Great's personal items. To see the interior rooms, you must take a guided tour (most are in German).

The visit inside the castle is mandatory only with only German speaking guide. Already the Interior of the castle in comparison to a cellar of an Italian Museum loses, if then you don't have to suck up to 30 minutes of German silent ascetic military romanzina punishment ... not.
splendida e fortunata giornata di sole, così i dintorni verdissimo sono stati valorizzati, il castello forse colpisce più da lontano che da vicino o da dentro, e in realtà è solo del 1850 tranne la ca... more »beautiful and lucky day, so verdant surroundings were overvalued, the Castle probably affects more from afar than up close or from within, and it's actually just the 1850 except the chapel of the fifteenth century and the dungeons. But in my opinion worth the visit, possibly on a nice day! The outward journey must be taken the van from the parking lot unless you are athletes in top form! The return to the car park is done in ten minutes by walk downhill.
Es muy bonito, impresiona verlo cuando vas llegando. Es un castillo muy reformado, y es de residencia. more »It is very nice, it is impressing to see when you're coming. It is a very reformed Castle, and is residence.
Great castle to visit, especially because the rooms are still decorated and with the original furnishing of the time, so it a real jump back in time. it is good to spend a couple of hours to walk around, and also outside the castle there are many trails inside the forest. The view from the top is simply amazing
Beautiful! Unlike some of the castles in Europe, this one appears to be somewhat of a hidden gem, at least for tourists. Our German family took us here, and there was a kids birthday going on with live music and a clown, which was fun. It's well taken care of, has a well-stocked beer garden (with great schnitzel!), and was a great way to spend an afternoon.
Only a 1 hour drive from Stuttgart. Easy access to parking only cost 2 euros. Took the 5 min shuttle bus you can also walk. cost 3.50 euros 2 ways. we arrived at Castle at 11am was very quiet. be warned after midday the tourist buses arrive and can me lengthy queues. Overall very good value for money entrance which included tour in English 12 euros. Amazing views.
the building is stunning! the outside cafe is great. but we were very upset with the price! the castle visit is 7€ each. (that's ok) but also 2€ to park! and another 3,50€ for the shuttle bus! 12,50€ each quite different to 7€
By far one of the best castles we visited in Europe. It wasn't as crowded with tourist as some of the more well known castles.
