It is our pleasure welcoming you
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 our 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 family. To us it means part of home.
Last but not least, it is also its extraordinary location which already prompted Emperor William II to proclaim “The panorama from the Hohenzollern Castle is truly worth a voyage”. It is our great pleasure to invite you to personally discover the landmark of the Zollernalb region with its numerous attractions.
