AlbCard | Schwarzwald Plus Karte

Are you an overnight guest in a hotel, guesthouse or vacation apartment in the Swabian Alb or the Black Forest? Then please ask - before you book an online ticket of Hohenzollern Castle or before you visit the castle - your host whether he is a member of the AlbCard or Schwarzwald Plus Karte. Because with the AlbCard or Schwarzwald Plus Card you can visit many leisure facilities free of charge - including Hohenzollern Castle.

If you receive a Schwarzwald Plus Karte from your host, please book a free Schwarzwald Plus Karte ticket in our online ticket system under the heading [Existing Ticket] and show this ticket in conjunction with the Schwarzwald Plus Karte at our admission control. Unfortunately, a subsequent  ticket refund is not possible. 

If you receive an AlbCard from your host, you do not need to book an online ticket, but you will receive your corresponding free admission ticket in the parking lot store of Burg Hohenzollern. A subsequent  ticket refund is unfortunately not possible.
