Meet a driver in central Frankfurt, then begin the 2.5-hour trip to the Castle of Hohenzollern in a comfortable, climate-controlled vehicle. The drive to the castle is a highlight of the tour—you’ll pass views of mountain peaks and the German countryside on your way to the Swabian Alps, which stretch from the Danube to the Black Forest.
Upon arrival at the Castle of Hohenzollern, take a guided tour of the site, learning about the imperial family that built the castle then filled it with a remarkable collection of art and artifacts. See pieces worked from gold and silver, displays of porcelain and painting, and the clothing that the castle’s residents once wore, and get a glimpse of daily life in the grand castle.
In addition to the guided tour of the Castle of Hohenzollern, you’ll have time to explore on your own, taking photographs, walking the walls, or sampling freshly-baked cakes and Swabian treats in the castle’s restaurant and beer garden. Following your time at the Castle of Hohenzollern, begin the return trip to Frankfurt, where this tour concludes at the original departure point.
