Hohen Neuffen Castle
Experience history at first hand
Hohen Neuffen is the largest ruined castle in South Germany. Its sweeping impact also makes it one of the most beautiful.Situated 335 m above the town of Neuffen and 743 m above sea level, the ruin's foundations lie on a prominent white Jurassic limestone cliff on the steep incline of the Swabian Alb mountains.It boasts 360 degree views across our beautiful meadows dotted with fruit trees in the Neuffen Valley.Since 1982, the Vetter family of innkeepers has run a successful business providing food and drink at the Hohen Neuffen Castle. Today, the castle restaurant is still a well-known excursion destination. Here, hikers savour lentils with Spätzle (noodles) or Maultaschen (Swabian ravioli) alongside business people enjoying a gourmet meal. The wide selection on the menu ranges from Swabian specialities to gourmet cuisine, offering something for everyone. Up to 160 people can be served at the castle premises.
