If you want to take a stroll and have a relaxed day, I would recommend this as a place to visit. Don't go expecting a full blown castle as they are simply ruins. There is a tower that I would recommend making the climb up....More

Took our Rotweiller to visit and the grounds were exceptionally clean, the views where stunning, parking was convenient and inexpensive. Nice place for a stroll or a picnic a kick about with the kids but otherwise little in the way of facilities.

Great views spoilt by overgrown trees, great walks spoilt by overgrown bushes, grass, trees, weeds etc. The whole place just looks like it is neglected. No signage, no information. Overall probably not worth a visit.

If you're looking for a nice walk with lovely views this is a great place to come. Car park costs and make sure you come on a clear day otherwise you'll miss out on the fantastic views.

Well worth a detour out of Stuttgart - you don't need to pay the extra to go inside to appreciate this castle. You can walk all the way around the ramparts for a 360 degree view of the area. There's a picnic area with tables...More

First of all, stay away from the 'bicycle route' suggested by Google along the steep cliff on the South side of the ruin. Walking down a bicycle here is possible but I wouldn't want to have to push one up there. Take the Syburger Dorfstrasse...More

For a number of years we have seen something in the distance when driving on the A1 autobahn. This time our curiosity won. So we left the motorway and without much difficulty found Parkanlage Hohensyburg. Nice park, impressive memorial for Kaiser Wilhelm (maybe not so...More

We spent the day going around the castle and it was nice, not super impressed with the whole experience but it is something to do when it's sunny outside and you don't want to spend the day at home.
