The "Friends of Hohenzollern Castle"
take pleasure to introduce themselves
As ancestral seat of the same named dynasty, Hohenzollern Castle is an important historic as well as a scenically imposing architectural site. Incurred costs for maintenance have to be borne privately by its owners. While in former times mainly wars, sieges and a periodically changing use had an impact on the complex, nowadays there are primarily environmental, weather related reasons and signs of wear which endanger the historic substance and the interior of the castle.
The “Friends of Hohenzollern Castle” feel obligated to contribute to the protection and preservation of this architectural landmark. In agreement with the Castle management, their art advisors and with the commissioned restorers, member fees, donations and income from other actions are invested mainly in maintenance measurements where direct and effective publicity support seem necessary and appropriate.
Furthermore, the organization offers a possibility for those who are interested in the castle and its history to get a closer insight into this fascinating architectural site and organizes in regular intervals special guided tours, exclusive previews as well as theme oriented excursions. Every member receives information of the organizations’ work and on presentation of a membership ID all members have free admission to the castle complex all year round.
