Create an itinerary including Burg Hohenzollern
Burg 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).

  • Nice old and big castle. In a good condition! A long walk way up. There is also a free pendle buss! Entrance price is €22,-

  • Loved touring this castle. Picture taking of the outside was great! They tell you no photos but everyone was taking them. The beergarden was closed so that was a disappointment and you don't go...

  • The fort is amazing, I've never seen anything like it! It's massive and breathtaking! The interior and the furniture inside are mostly preserved, so you can experience the old Prussian luxury and elegance. There are also endless passages and staircases, the royal treasury is a must-see, and the bastion with a collection of weapons would be interesting to any history buff. And the photos don't do it justice, you won't be prepared for the magnificent view and the gigantic castle. Definitely worth the visit, you won't regret it!
  • On the way to the castle, seeing its silhouette in the distance was amazing, then actually being next to it was even better. At the time of my visit, there was still some construction work going on, so we were only able to walk around the courtyard and along the walls, and could only enter the 2 chapels. I would've loved to explore the entire inside of the castle, but regardless, it was still great.
