  • It offers history, movement/effort and views in one. One of the highlights in the region. And all around, there are still more beautiful hiking trails. Also the wine is there to buy it is good! Bring time and inform like to advance. There are audio guides and also a free app to download, that lead you through the ruins of the fortress.

  • Liked again. Especially in dryer weather you can see the Alps. Of course the beautiful Lake Constance. And the beautiful Hegau landscape. A must for families

  • There are many variants and to wander on the Hohentwiel. A glance at the map advance worthwhile in any case. And there is also much to see. Historically interesting due to the Castle, botanically with the many meadows, in the autumn the really rare Silberdisteln, the natural forest grow, two vineyards (Olga Berg and Elisabeth Berg) framed the Hohentwiel, ever again, a flock of sheep, if you're lucky, there are also goats, chickens, and other animals to see. You can almost always see squirrels. For children of all ages from three, this is a great mountain, because he is blessed with a lot of variety. As well as not there something and boring lines around each bend to discover new. There are many places most and of course on the mountain, where you can enjoy a fantastic view, days with mountain view, it is of course particularly beautiful. One can think of are tours where they are busy (with the eintrittspflichigen section of the Castle) throughout the day, you can, but make also a small walk of less than an hour. Unfortunately I can the Hohentwielgaststätte following the hike does not recommend, I unfortunately have never had luck. You want to spend longer time on the Hohentwiel, take a Vesper, a kiosk is the bastion of Karl, there's decent sausage.

  • The trip from Singen Train Station takes approximately 1.5 hours by walk but you can also take a taxi and drive almost to the top. It is a large complex with lots of ruins and rocks. With good weather conditions you can see lake constance, city of constance and the alps. Great location for children with lots of information about the history of this castle.
  • Deutschlands grösste Festungsruine. Sollte man gesehen haben. Lohnenswert besonders bei gutem Wetter und Fernsicht.
  • Marvelous view from impressive an impressive ruin.
  • Nice walk up to a great castle ruins with a superb view
  • Interesting historical place!
