Near byShrouded in legend: the land of the Staufers
In the Staufer heartland, the rich history of the area is downright palpable. The gentle landscape around the Hohenstaufen is quite compelling. Wäscherschloss Castle and Lorch Monastery are so close to each other that you can hike between them.
In medieval times, Lorch Monastery was the Hohenstaufen familiy's place of worship and burial site.
