Hohenbaden Castle Reviews
We had valentine's dinner there. It was a pre-selected menu so it probably does not represent the normal selection, and it was non-impressive, more of a mismatch of different dishes. Having said that.... more »
I was there for aroubd half an hour. It was worth visiting this castle and I enjoyed. You can sldo have a good hiking there. more »
It's a hike, but the views are amazing! You can see for miles. The castle lets your mind wander to a time long ago. We were there before it opened so we didn't eat at the cafe, but it is still one of the best stops we made while in Germany.
If you love old castles and ruins, or just incredible views, this is a place for you. The castle is in ruins but there is enough there to really envision what it must have looked and felt like to live there. As a bonus there is no admission and a restaurant there. There was very few people there when we went through it. There is however, no real information about the castle ruins on site. It is a self "tour" so do your research first if you like history. The view is incredible from the tower and other vistas on site. HINT: If you don't feel like a hike to get up to the castle, simply drive up to it the back way.
