    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.

    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".

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    Beautiful view, many ways to the summit, there is some seating and a restaurant upstairs. Especially nice to see the sunrise early in the morning.
