  • When visiting the ruins of the old Hohenbaden Castle you have a beautiful view of Baden-Baden, the Rhine Plain, Rastatt and the Vosges. From the city centre, the castle ruins can be reached by car in 10 minutes and 50 minutes on foot. Visiting and parking are free. There are beautiful hiking trails around the castle. You can rest in the uninlaid courtyard of the castle restaurant Fidelitas (11:30-16:30) in the appropriate weather.

  • Really cool to explore these castle ruins. Unfortunately there is some construction work right now, but still neat. If you go early you can have it all to yourself!
  • Very nice castle, pretty good preserved. You can drive to the castle. Castle itself is high and you can enjoy spectacular view. Trekking path starting from castle is also worth a trip. You can choose shorter one and spend about 1 hour, or longer one, about 2 or more hours. Trekking path goes on the ridge with many nice viewpoints.
