Interesting old castle ruins, great for walking and exploring. The views from the top are excellent. Perfect for children, they would love to climb and explore the many parts of the ruins.

Our family had a blast exploring and could have stayed here all day. This is our favorite castle hike. We parked at the base of the castle and still got a great hike in because of all of the trails, stairs, & mossy boulders to climb on. My tween boys loved adventuring through the tree lined trails and boulders. The views were stunning and the Hohenbaden castle was impressive & beautiful. Highly recommend for all ages.
Great! Impressive! You need a car to get there, but walking on foot makes this visit to the castle even more impressive from the landscapes you see and the magnificence of the views of the city. The castle is great and great views of the city. For young people, a walk will be an additional entertainment. I recommend!
Amazing visit when in Baden-Baden... Entrance is free, but there is a kiosk for small bites and beers. One of the best castles to visit because you can walk everywhere around the ruins and going to the top gives an impressive view from the surroundings
i always love to visit castles. but this one was not so complete as some of the area was blocked. i did hike around the path way. the place was amazing. especially during sunset time. i did climb to some higher area near the rock mountain where people were doing rock climbing there. aside, the restaurant was closed.
A great stop along the first stage of the Black Forest's famous Panorama trail. This well-preserved ruin can be explorered free of charge (all the way to the top floor!) during the opening hours and gives you a wonderful view of Baden-Baden and the surrounding hills. Please note that it's also a popular venue for weddings, so respect the festivities when passing through.
