Photographer's Note

Once more I was a little bit quiet here. Why? Just travelling around.
Last week we had a beautiful sunny day with blue sky.
So I took the opportunity and went to see this majestic castle, the Hohenzollern Castle, just 150 km away.
I’ve taken this photo from snow-free south side, with the white moon as special bonus.

This beautiful castle is located on top of Mount Hohenzollern at an elevation of 855 meters above sea level; 234 m above the “low land” with towns of Hechingen and Bisingen.

The castle was first constructed in the early 11th century, after total destruction the second castle was built in 15th century and finally rebuilt to the present shape in 19th century.

On 3 September 1978, the Hohenzollern Castle temporarily closed after sustaining extensive damage due to an earthquake in the Alb region.

Hohenzollern Castle is still privately owned. The castle is open for visitors, you have the choice to join guided tour or to explore the castle on your own.
