Lichtenstein Castle

The castle is situated on a cliff near Honau on the Swabian Alb. Built around 1200, it was twice destroyed and subsequently fell to ruin. In 1802, the land came into the hands of King Frederick I of Württemberg, who built a hunting lodge there. By 1837, the land had passed to his nephew Duke Wilhelm of Urach, Count of Württemberg, who, inspired by Wilhelm Hauff's novel Lichtenstein, added the current romantic Neo-Gothic castle in 1840-42. The castle is still owned by the Dukes of Urach, and contains a large collection of historic weapons and armour.
