Your private driver will pick you up in the lobby of your hotel and your journey to the romantic Burg Hohenzollern begins. After approximately 1 hour you will arrive at the picturesque castle towering above the countryside.
The Hohenzollern Castle, the ancestral seat of the family dynasty, is situated at the periphery of the Swabian Alb. It is no museum in its traditional sense but a historic as well as a distinct lively place which attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over the world all year round. Besides essential parts of their art collection, including a significant picture gallery, valuable silver and china as well as the Prussian King’s Crown, numerous concerts, open-air cinema, exhibitions and one of Germany’s most beautiful Christmas markets make the Castle to an attractive cultural event all year round.
Today’s Castle complex was jointly restored by both Hohenzollern lines in the 19th century and is private property up to now. For almost a thousand years it provides temporary housing for the Hohenzollern family.
Enjoy a guided tour through show- and staterooms in the castle. Here history becomes alive. Illustrations and highly pleasurable anecdotes and stories refer to the lives of Majesties and Highnesses. An absolute highlight is the Treasury. Here a display of valuable art-historical items can be discovered – among them precious silversmith works and china, snuff boxes of Frederick the Great, his original garment with the legendary bullet hole, the splendid robe of Queen Louise of Prussia as well as – being the most impressive exhibit – the Prussian Royal crown.
After the tour enjoy lunch in the restaurant at the castle or should the weather permit , in the nice castle beer garden , before you return to Stuttgart.
