Hohenzollern Castle is a magnificent hilltop castle located in the Swabian Jura, in the state of Baden-Württemberg in Germany. The castle was originally built in the 11th century but was destroyed in the 15th century during the Swabian War. It was rebuilt in the 19th century in a neo-Gothic style, and the current castle has become a symbol of German Romanticism. The castle is owned by the Hohenzollern family, who are one of the most prominent royal families in Germany. It is open to the public and attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. The castle is famous for its stunning architecture, beautiful interior, and impressive collection of art and artifacts. Visitors can explore the castle's many rooms and halls, including the chapel, the armory, and the throne room. The castle also has a museum that showcases the history of the Hohenzollern family and the castle itself.
