  • Our family had a blast exploring and could have stayed here all day. This is our favorite castle hike. We parked at the base of the castle and still got a great hike in because of all of the trails, stairs, & mossy boulders to climb on. My tween boys loved adventuring through the tree lined trails and boulders. The views were stunning and the Hohenbaden castle was impressive & beautiful. Highly recommend for all ages.
  • Amazing visit when in Baden-Baden... Entrance is free, but there is a kiosk for small bites and beers. One of the best castles to visit because you can walk everywhere around the ruins and going to the top gives an impressive view from the surroundings
