    The Hohenstaufen is a witness mountain with a ruin that lies almost 10 kilometers north of the steep Albtrauf. Due to its exposed location you have a beautiful panoramic view from the summit. The castle was formerly the headquarters of the Staufer. However, the mountain was already inhabited in the early Middle Ages - a long time before the castle existed. The ruin can only be reached on foot or by bike and there is a small excursion restaurant.

    For handicapped people there is the possibility to reach the mountain messenger on the Hohenstaufen. During the summer months, it operates every two weeks on Sundays.
    The departure on the dates is at 11 clock at the parking lot across from the SV Göppingen on the Hohenstaufen road in Göppingen. The return from the mountain is around 2 pm. Registration under Tel. (07161) 999 100. The association "mountain Hohenstaufen" asks for the mountain courier for a donation.

    Great view, on the summit there are various viewpoints which explain which places you can see in the distance, a kl. Kiosk for what to buy and great seating. On weekends a lot going on during the week hardly. There is a "lighter" and a "heavier" way to climb

    In the footsteps of Emperor Barbarossa you can enjoy a breathtaking view over the Filstal and the Swabian Alb as far as Stuttgart.
    Also for food and drink is provided thanks to the mountain restaurant "heaven and earth".

    There is usually a lot going on here, unless it is early in the morning. The view is definitely worth the climb.

    The Hohenstaufen is a 684 m above sea level. NHN high, the Schwäbischen Alb upstream Zeugenberg near Göppingen. Its cone rises far visible and is a striking element of the landscape silhouette around Göppingen.

    Just as the Kaiser mountains are visible from afar, so you have beautiful views of the country.

    The ascent to the Hohenstaufen is always worth it with such a great view! There is also a nice beer garden where you can relax and refresh yourself.
