Overlooking the city is the imposing Haigerloch Castle, surrounded by the forests of Zollernalb. The first mention of the settlement of a castle in Haigerloch dates back to 1095. After a splendid story, the castle is forgotten. Until 1970 it was used as an education and research center. Five years later, Paul Eberhard Schwenk bought the building and converted it into a five-star hotel with a restaurant. Interest aroused? Then click on this link: schloss-haigerloch.de.

Around 1200, the counts of Hohenberg started to build a new castle on the site of the present castle. After several alterations over time and a varied history, Count Christoph von Hohenzollern-Haigerloch rebuilt the medieval castle from 1580 to 1588 into a renaissance castle.
