Royal Winter Magic instead of Christmas Market -

Sunday to Thursday:   15:00 - 20:00 Uhr
Friday and Saturday:  15:00 - 21:00 Uhr
Outside this times Hohenzollern Castle is closed.
Days of rest: 24 + 31 December 2021 (castle completely closed) 

The Royal Winter Magic will indulge you with enchanting illuminations and festive decorations in the inside and outside. Stroll along the castle grounds and through the interior and let yourself be led away into the Christmas world of the nobels and royals attended by contemplative sounds and the glamour of Advent. Court jester Klausi Klücklich will fly tiny and huge bubbles from the courtyard. Occasionally Santa Claus will drop by.

The castle's gastronomy invites to Christmas delicacies in the castle restaurant. You are welcome to reserve a table in the Fridericus- or in the Berliner room to enjoy one of our winter menus. 

In the castle garden you can hire your favorite little hut to spend a good time with your friends by enjoying mulled wine, gingerbread and other fine snacks. The huts can be reserved by groups of up to 6 persons. Please check the availability of the huts before you book your online tickets.

For booking and price requests regarding all culinary offerings please contact

Tickets (regulary entrance fees) for the Royal Winter Magic are available in the Online-Ticket-Portal only (regular tickets in the section "Buy tickets"). To guarantee the legal regulations and hygiene regulations there is a limited quantity of tickets per day. The tickets need to be booked for a special day with a certain time slot of admission (the admission time slot of 1 hour is only the time you have to pass the entrance gate and has nothing to do with your residence time).

The two parking lots P1 and P2 are open at the days of the Royal Winter Magic from 14:30 hrs and will be regulary serviced by the shuttle bus. The last shuttle from the castle down to the parking lots is 30 minutes after the end of the Royal Magic of Advent in each case.
