    The largest castle in the Danube valley region, Sitting majestically on top of a cliff, overlooking the Town of Sigmaringen and the beautiful countryside surrounding the Danube river.

    The first mentioning of the castle was in 1077.  And although you cannot see much of the castle from this time, it is still there, but hidden under newer parts of the castle.  After many renovations and a fire that nearly burned the entire east wing down in 1893, the castle has become the current size and appearance.  Some of the castle remains are as old as 1200.  They are the gate, great hall and keep.  The ownership of the castle today is shared between the Prussian and princely house of the Hohenzollern lines and is considered the sister castle to Hohenzollern Berg.  Since the times of 1927, Friedrich, the Prince of the House from 1927 to 1965, opened the carriage house in the lower story of the museum as an early history museum.  Some of the collectins within the castle include, the weapon collection which contains over 3000 different examples of weapons and armor, pre and ancient history collection and the marstallmuseum which is the collection of princely carriages.
