Although reconstructed few times the castle history back to the 11th century when there was no sign of modern light pollution in the whole world. Today the castle is only about 50 kilometers south of Stuttgart and it's located on top of Mount Hohenzollern about 230 m above nearby towns Hechingen and Bisingen.
