  • Owned by one of the oldest and most important Swabian Hohenzollern dynasties, this architectural gem located on a rocky outcrop is the emblem of the charming German town of Siegmaringen, in the southwest of the Bundesland Baden-Württemberg, about 90 Km the city of Stuttgart in southern Germany. This original medieval fortress was later transformed to become more than 450 locations one of the largest and most impressive German castles. Guided tours through the halls sumptuous reveal to visitors the daily lives of the principles, achievements and fascinating characters who populated the Manor, the dynastic arms collections, tapestries, hunting trophies. In particular, participation in any of the events organized for tourists have suggestive time travel, as costumed interpretation of famous fairy tales, the reproduction of court balls, pottery and painting workshops "Banquet "in the Leopoldsaal Salon of Prince Leopold. This is a menu of five courses reproduced by the chef according to historical recipes for reminiscing about twice the (usually in April and October) the sumptuous wedding held at the Castle evrso the end of 800 between Prince Ferdinand von Hohenzollern and Princess Marie of Edinburgh, granddaughter of Queen Victoria of England. In the magnificent ballroom of about 150 square metres, between precious stucco and chandeliers sparkling, guests can even today-by reservation and at a cost of around 100 euros-participate in this exclusive experience. The visit to the manner of Siegmaringen, however, is also an opportunity to replenish your body and mind in a town surrounded by an unspoiled natural landscape of dense forests, steep mountains, green pastures and fresh air.

  • One of the modern castles in Germany. Good place to spend some time on a weekend. As the castle is not vast, it hardly takes 1 hour for the whole trip even with a guide. The guide is only in German. However, they provide a booklet which contains all the descriptions in English. Taking pictures inside the castle is prohibited. But the view from outside is an eye feast. And do try the black forest cake which is a speciality in the region
  • Beautiful castle with one of the most impressive collections of medieval weapons I've seen.
  • 1000+ years uninterrupted royal heritage. Great weapon collection!
  • A must see if you are in the area. Very good and value for money guided tour but... in German language only. Free if charge guides in other languages provided
  • Worth a visit. Very good guided tour but... in German language only...
