Pure Hohenzollern

Tours of two unique cultural heritage sites make this overnight package a truly unforgettable experience!

Hohenzollern Castle

An enthralling journey through German history awaits your group at the impressive ancestral castle of the Hohenzollern family. Explore the exhibits and splendid rooms of the Hohenzollern dynasty from which Prussian kings and German emperors originate. This is where history comes alive! Vivid, highly entertaining anecdotes and stories from the lives of their majesties and highnesses. The treasury is the highlight of the tour and houses valuable works of art and items of historic interest such as exquisite silverware and porcelain, tobacco boxes belonging to Frederick the Great as well as his tunic with the legendary bullet hole, the splendid court dress of Queen Louise of Prussia and – one very special highlight – the Prussian royal crown.

(Tour duration: Approx. 45 minutes.)

The Hohenzollern's Sigmaringen Castle

The ancestral home of the princes of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen can be see from miles away, sitting atop a rocky outcrop like a romantic fairytale castle. Allow your guests a glimpse into the castle's splendid rooms to gain an impression of how men and women of noble birth used to live. One of Europe's largest collections of weapons is housed in the armoury and tells of the time when the castle was still a fortress.

(Tour duration: 1 hour.)
