I don't think so. They held on to their considerable private fortune, but the palaces are all owned by the state. Of course, Prussia no longer exists, so there is no comparable entity to Bavaria or even the former principalities for them to be tied to (Brandenburg was part of East Germany, a regime not friendly to royalty, and Prussia's original capital, Konigsburg is not Kalinigrad in Russia).
Prince Georg Friedrich (interesting to note: On his website's English version he is called George Frederick) works with the Sigmaringin branch of the House of Hohenzollern to preserve the heritage of Burg Hohenzollern.
