Knowing important details about Hohenzollern Castle Germany


The castle of Hohenzollern is located near the Swiss Alps about 50 km south of Stuttgart, the state capital of Baden-Württemberg. Until the end of World War 2 It is considered the residence of the dynasty Hohenzollern – rulers of Brandenburg and Prussia with roots originating back in the middle ages and later on Emperors of Germany. Geographically, the castle sits on top of mount Hohenzollern at 855 meters above sea level. Initially built in the 11th century it was later completely destroyed after 10 month siege in 1423. Forty years later it has been rebuilt – larger and stronger. After the 18th century the castle lost its strategic importance and has been left to decay. Credit: youramazingplaces
