Immerse yourself in the past, explore historic sites and medieval towns in the Staufer Country at your own pace. The "Staufer Route" takes you to Romanesque churches and formidable castles where once the Staufer dynasty lived.

A special highlight on this tourist route through some of Baden-Württemberg's most beautiful scenery must surely be Hohenstaufen Castle: more than 800 years ago the rulers of Swabia chose the mountain as the site of their ancestral seat.

The foundations of the great hall and the keep can still be seen today. More in-depth information on the Staufer era can be found in the comprehensive exhibition in the Documentation Room for Staufer History at the foot of the mountain.
