The town of Hechingen is about 2 hours by train from Mannheim, and is the closest town to Hohernzollern Castle, which was my first destination. When I got to Hechingen, I could barely see the castle on the hill, as it was shrouded in cloud.
I made my way into the town, and realised that maybe getting to the castle wasn’t going to happen today. The footpaths were icy and I was scared I was going to slip over, and the castle was hardly visible anyway.
The bus I wanted to take to the castle also wasn’t running, so it meant getting a taxi there and back, and hoping the castle was open when I got there.
I decided to change my plans and head to Stuttgart instead, so I caught a taxi to the station, and headed back to Stuttgart.
Once there, I wandered through the Schloß Garten (Castle Garden) and then back along the main street, Königstraße.
It was then time to head back to Mannheim, as I was getting the overnight train to Prague at midnight.
