Lichtenstein Castle

72805 Lichtenstein
Open from 09:00 to 17:30 o'clock

Lichtenstein Castle is a beautiful castle built in the 19th century. It is located at the edge of the Swabian Alps, 817 metres above sea level.

Inspired by Wilhelm Hauff’s novel “Lichtenstein” Count Wilhelm of Württemberg had it built in 1840-42. The site around the neo-Gothic castle is composed of other buildings from the 19th century, a chapel, an ample garden and the romantic courtyard. In the bedchambers of the count the opulent grandeur of late romanticism’s domestic culture appears at its best.

Built to pay homage to medieval times, Lichtenstein Castle is also known as “Württemberg´s fairytale castle” as it adheres to romanticism in style and furnishing.
