Germany’s Hohenzollern Castle – Keep Calm and Wander

Hoholzollen Castle - Keep Calm and Wander

Hohenzollern Castle is just one of the 20,000 fairy-tale-like castles in Germany. Indeed, you can’t be in Germany without visiting an old castle, be it small, medium or large. They’ve got castles in the city to the outskirts; to the plains and hilltops. These castles, of course, were once occupied by the royals and aristocrats whose influence ruled the land.

Where is Hohenzollern Castle?

The address is: 72379, Hechingen, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. But where exactly is this, you might ask. It’s actually an hour from Stuttgart by car. I was lucky that a friend that I’ve never seen for more than 30 years lives there and she was kind to drive me up there with her husband. In other words, I didn’t have to worry about public transport. We only depended on Google map for directions because both of them had never been there before. If I didn’t visit them, they would never have gone there.

How to get there?

The nearest train station here is Hechingen Station (Bahnhof/ZOB, Hechingen). There’s a train at 10:16 AM from Stuttgart and it arrives at Hechingen 11:19 AM. From here, you can take a bus that will take you to Hohenzollern Castle. Don’t forget to ask for the bus schedule so you won’t miss your train going back to Stuttgart or onwards to your next destination. If time is not your issue, then you can stay for a night either in Tubingen or Hechingen.

Stuttgart, Germany - Travels of AdamFor the past ten days I’ve been exploring the southwestern state of Baden-Wuerttemberg with some other bloggers and instagrammers. Traveling by train, we’ve covered 10 different cities in just 10 days. It’s been a jam-packed trip spent drinking beer (at the Cannstatter Wasen), hiking (in the Black Forest) and eating far too many schnitzels and spaetzles.

While I took my DSLR camera with me on this trip, I’ve actually been taking most photos with my iPhone. I’ve got VuTheara and Joanna to thank for that–the two instagrammers on my trip who have inspired me to up my photography game, especially the mobile editing I’ve been doing with iPhone apps such as Snapseed.

Their simple and stunning photos are an inspiration for what can be done with just an iPhone camera and a few choice photo-editing apps. Using what I’ve learned, here are a few of my favorite iPhone-only photos I’ve snapped while in Baden-Wuerttemberg.
