    Nice views (almost 360 degrees) in all directions. Has a snack bar and public toilets. Restaurant is not always open. The castle itself suffered a lot at the beginning of the 19th century and is therefore only a ruin, albeit a beautiful one.

    More information about the castle is available at hohenneuffen.de.

    There are a total of seven state fortresses in Baden-Württemberg. The High Neuffen is a very beautiful fortress ruin, but not the largest. The largest is by far the Hohentwiel at singing.

    At the castle there is a restaurant, a nice beer garden and a kiosk. The casemates are freely accessible.
    Entrance to the castle is not (yet) required.

    With a ceremony, a monument donated by Mechthild and Roland Munk was unveiled at the castle. In keeping with the 60th anniversary of the takeover of the Stauferlöwen as the coat of arms of the state of Baden-Württemberg, a Hohenstaufen memorial was unveiled at Hohenneuffen Castle. The octagonal memorial stone made from Jura travertine bordered with creamy white has been donated by Mechthild and Roland Munk from Degerloch.

    The kiosk in the castle is open in January and offers mulled wine. Nice route very worthwhile. I would judge difficulty with means and there are several high viewpoints with beautiful views of the valley.

    The castle Hohenneuffen is a popular destination with restaurant, beer garden and kiosk. The entrance to the castle is free. Worth seeing are the partially accessible casemates.

    Every year in June the Hohenneuffen mountain run takes place, in which the runners from the start in Linsenhofen cover a distance of 9.3 km and 438 vertical meters. The organizers of the mountain run are TSV Beuren and TSV Frickenhausen. At the castle many other events take place, such as a medieval market or concerts in the courtyard. In the summer season there is a "falconry spectacle" on Sundays and public holidays where many birds of prey are shown in free flight. From April to October, the second Sunday of the month is a church in the open.

    Very impressive is also the lighting of the outer walls on Sundays and public holidays. Originally donated by the Neuffen citizen Otto Krieg in the 1950s, the complex was completely renewed in 1984 by the city and cultural ring Neuffen e.V. and is maintained by the latter.

    That was a beautiful hike, many different ways, especially the single trails we liked. A little break on the Hohe Neuffen and back.

    Great goal to drink a non-alcoholic yeast in the forecourt. A bit steep ascent, but this is definitely worth it 👌
