We have been today and I must say more than expected. Food in the court yard with reasonable prices. Well done to the English tour leader 12.00pm.

Home to the Kings of Germany, this castle is a great view, although large. There are the Crown Jewels, and the great hall and the obligatory chapel. It is sad that there wasn’t photography allowed in parts, especially the great hall. The really impressive part...More

This is the best maintained and luxuriously decorated castle we have ever visited. The crystal chandeliers, the sumptuous drapery, the old masters paintings, the encased silver services, the jewel-encrusted gold crown, and the lovely chapel all displayed a truly regal life. It’s impressive that descendants...More

The castle isn't easy to get to from Stuttgart. There are direct trains to Hechingen but you will probably have to connect through Tubingen. From Hechingen, you can wait for the bus to take you to the parking lot at the castle, or you can...More
