Hohentwiel Fortress Ruins

TIPP

Please note:
The Hohentwiel fortress ruin surrounded by rocks must be temporarily closed for safety reasons: The reason for this are fallen stones. The State Palaces and Gardens of Baden-Wuerttemberg are making every effort to lift the block as quickly as possible. For the time being, however, people's safety must take precedence over the visitor experience.
