Shuttle Bus


A shuttle bus commutes between the parking lot P1 (upper parking lot) and the Eagle's Gate, the castle's entrance gate. The shuttle bus station is right beside the souvenir shop at the parking lot P1. Parking lot P2 (lower parking lot) is open if necessary and then connected with the shuttle bus service.

The shuttle bus ticket is already included in the ticket of Hohenzollern Castle.

During the Royal Winter Magic, 25.11.2022 - 08.01.2023, the shuttle bus runs daily from 15:00 - 20:30, on Fridays and Saturdays until 21:30, approximately every 10 minutes.
(Restrictions caused by weather are possible.)

Days of rest: 28.11. + 29.11. + 05.12. + 12.12. + 19.12. + 24.12. + 31.12.2022.

Please notice: The shuttle bus stops at the Eagle's Gate (castle entrance). From the Eagle's Gate up to the courtyard it is a 350 metres walk through the impressive ramp complex (partially cobblestone).
