Singen Landmark - The Hohentwiel
The Hegau denotes a hilly landscape characterized by the sight of nine conical, inactive volcanoes - hence the name "the Lord 's skittles game". The Hohentwiel, the king of the Hegau volcanoes, stands above Singen. It houses the largest German fortress ruin with a total area of 9.92 hectares. On the Hohentwiel History trail you can discover the most interesting parts of the fortress, and Hohentwiel is a good starting point for hikes to explore more Hegau mountains - Experience the volcanic and medieval castles around Singen.
After the visit to our volcano, enjoy local wines at a wine tasting at the vineyard Vollmayer at the bottom of Hohentwiel, of course made from vines on the slopes of Hohentwiel.
