Germany - Sigmaringen Castle

Germany - Sigmaringen Castle
Sigmaringen Castle (Schloss Sigmaringen or Hohenzollernschloss) is standing on a cliff high above the city and the Danube. Originally built as a fortress it has been transformed into a residential palace. With its 450 rooms it is Germany’s second largest palece.

The original fortress at Sigmaringen was first mentioned in 1077, but the earliest construction, still visible today, dates back to the 12th century. The oldest parts of the original castle and fortress are hidden beneath the alterations and rebuilding that took place between the 17th and 19th century. Sigmaringen Castle was almost completely destroyed by a devastating fire in 1893 and had to be rebuilt. Destructions and constructions continued to take place up until 1902.

Sigmaringen Castle has been the home of the Swabian branch of the Hohenzollern family since 1535. For hundreds of years the European aristocracy met at the castle and the family of Hohenzollern still owns the castle today. The palace can be visited by a guided tour.

(We did not visit the castle, but only looked at the exterior from two points. First from a hill with the Josefskapelle – PiP3 - and later from the bank of the Danube - main picture and PiP 1 and 2.)

belle photo et beau château , un peu composite. Les français un peu mordu d'histoire savent que ce château fût le lieu où les allemands emmenèrent le Maréchal Pétain et son gouvernement " fantôme" après le débarquement allié en Normandie. Ce fût une enclave française où Laval , De Brinon , Darnand...etc purent se croire encore aux commandes , alors qu'ils étaient simplement des marionettes aux mains des nazis. Il y a un excellent roman de Pierre Assouline qui raconte cela : Sigmaringen. Tout simplement.

This castle served as a residence for Marshal Petain and his government, from September 1944 to May 1945!

Such a spectacular castle..................and perfectly positioned to dominate the landscape. Beautifully composed and taken Jaap.

Good to see the castle from different perspectives in the PiPs too, but I think your choice of this shot as the main image is spot-on..!!

Hi Jaap,

Very nice picture, and what a wonderful castle!!

I imagine that they need the revenue from tours to keep the place maintained, and in reality live in the attic!

Best Wishes
