Foot Path


Due to the effects of the storm of 24 August 2023, there is still a risk of broken trees on some forest paths. Visitors are asked to avoid the forest paths marked as closed and to use the shuttle bus instead, which is already included in the castle ticket.


From parking lot P1 (upper parking lot) there goes a foot path up to the Eagle's Gate (main entrance of Hohenzollern Castle). The foot path is 600 metres long and partially pretty steeb with some stair cases. To walk the foot path it takes minimum 25 minutes. Alternatively you can walk on the street (1100 metres). From the Eagle's Gate there are another 350 metres up to the castle's courtyard.  

If necessary, the lower parking lot P2 will be opened and connected with the shuttle bus service.

During storms please do not walk through the forest.
In winter time  the foot path will be closed because of ice and packed snow.
