Hohenstaufen Castle Ruins

73037 Göppingen-Hohenstaufen

Little trace can be found today of the castle which for nearly two centuries was formerly the seat of the dukes of Swabia.

Built in the year 1070, the ancestral seat of the Staufer dynasty was destroyed during the Peasants' War in 1525, its walls dismantled bit by bit, and finally completely levelled in 1736. In the 1930s and from 1967 to 1971 its foundation walls were once again uncovered.
