Your way to the Castle

Arrival by car

On A 81 (Stuttgart–Singen), exit Empfingen, on B463 in direction Balingen, then on B 27 in direction Hechingen (in Hechingen, Burg Hohenzollern signposts give you the direction) or via B 27 (Stuttgart–Tübingen-Hechingen-Balingen), exit Burg Hohenzollern. The road leads through the forest directly to the parking lot of the Castle. A sufficient number of parking places is available for the buses. The increasingly steep getting walking path (approx. 30 minutes) leads to the Castle entrance, the Eagle’s Gate. Here you find the cashier booth. The Castle can be reached more comfortably by taking the shuttle bus (station is opposite the parking lot). Please refer to the Route planner for your arrival by car.
