The Hohenstaufen is a witness mountain with a ruin, which is almost 10 kilometers north of the steep Albtraufs. Due to its exposed location, you have a beautiful all-round view from the summit. The castle used to be the headquarters of the Hohenstaufen family. The mountain was already settled in the early Middle Ages - a time long before the castle existed. The ruin can only be reached on foot or by bike and there is a small restaurant.
