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.
