Hohenzollern Castle: Full-Day Tour from Frankfurt

1. Hohenzollern Castle: Full-Day Tour from Frankfurt

Journey into the mountains of the Swabian Alps to visit one of the most remarkable fortresses in Germany. This day trip takes you through the charming woodland in the south of Germany, on a journey filled with history and stories from the height of the House of Hohenzollern. Depart Frankfurt for the drive south into the forests of Baden-Wurttemberg. Get an outstanding look at the isolated peak of Hohenzollern as the mountain rises over the countryside, crowned by the majestic 19th-century castle that stands atop its peak.  As you step onto the castle grounds, your guide will explain how an earlier fortress built on this mountain lent its name to the family dynasty that would rise to rule the kingdom of Prussia and become emperors of Germany. Reflect on 1,000 years of heritage, from Friedrich I to Wilhelm II, as you explore the mighty ramparts, courtyard, and towers. Take spectacular photographs of the surrounding lands. Next, follow your guide into the grand halls and exquisitely furnished rooms, where old paintings, porcelain, and works of gold and silver rest among artifacts from the Hohenzollern dynasty. Take a look at a uniform that belonged to Frederick the Great and the crown of Kaiser Wilhelm II before you depart for your journey back to Frankfurt.

This was a very comfortable and enjoyable trip. Convenient pickup and drop off near Main Railroad station. The transportation was first class and the tour guide/driver was very helpful. The Hohenzollern Castle is worth seeing. It is a bit of a drive from Frankfurt, but not too bad if you don’t have to drive yourself. Very scenic area around too.
