Tips

  • Vanessa Kopp

    From here you have the most beautiful view of the castle Hohenzollern - postcard motives guaranteed. The Zeller Horn (913 meters altitude) is part of the Albtraufs, the northwest-facing steep drop of the Swabian Alb.

  • The Zeller Horn is not a mountain but a rocky outcrop north of the Raichberg. From the Zeller Horn you have the most beautiful view in the Swabian Alb on the castle Hohenzollern, which is not 2 kilometers north on the upstream Zollerberg. The view extends much further north into the lowlands at the foot of the Swabian Alb. The slopes of the Zeller Horn are a nature reserve with a large variety of plants. This place is ideal for a short rest. Approximately one kilometer south is the hiking house Nägelehaus.

  • It is always worthwhile to take a look over the castle Hohenzollern, especially when it is above the clouds

    From here you have the most beautiful, impressive and breathtaking view of Hohenzollern Castle.

    The Zeller Horn is a mountain on the Albtrauf, on district Hechingen and Albstadt-Onstmettingen. The name is due to the departed settlement "cell" from the 15th century, the present district Boll.

  • When you arrive from the forest on the Zellerhorn, it almost seems like you could touch the Zollernburg.

  • From the Zeller Horn you have a wide panorama. This extends to the south-west on such prominent points as the Plettenberg, the cement works in Dotternhausen and the Thyssen tower in Rottweil to the French Alps. Over the Vosges (in the west) one can let the view to the north swing into the Stuttgart area.

  • Simply ingenious: The climb up to the mountain is worthwhile in any case. As already written by tens of other commentators. From here you have a perfect view of the castle Hohenzollern, no matter what the season. It is best to take a little snack and take a break here. You can sit well on the rocks, a bit set back but there are also benches and tables.

  • From the Zeller Horn the view to the ancestral castle of the German emperors, the Hohenzoller is best.
    Unfortunately, when I was there, there was just a storm. When the weather is fine, the castle will be illuminated by the sun at midday. There are really great pictures

  • The view of Hohenzollern Castle is just great here. And even more beautiful with the perfect sunset.
    However, you are probably never completely alone here, as it is a very popular vantage point.
