Requirements for the castle visit

Due to the legal Corona requirements you must meet the following requirements:

VRT evidence
Due to the current legal requirements by the state of Baden-Württemberg you need a VRT evidence (Vaccinated or Recovered or Tested) for your Hohenzollern Castle visit. This requirement applies to all visitors from 6 years on*. If you are not vaccinated or recovered you need a negative Corona test (quick test is enough, max. 24 hours).

* Regarded as a tested person is an asymptomatic person who has not yet completed the sixth year of life or is not yet enrolled in school or is a pupil of a primary school, a special educational and counselling centre, a school that builds on the primary school or a vocational school, whereby the credible proof must as a rule be provided by an appropriate identification document.

If you want to visit our restaurant or beer garden we are bound by law to take a data collection. This you can do comfortably by the Luca app or handwritten in a blank form.
