Lichtenstein castle is the iconic cliff-top castle, named for the flawless white external masonry. The newest incarnation was built in 1840, with its previous incarnations being destroyed twice since 1200 AD. Visitors can overlook the Swabian Alps of the German countryside and hundreds of orange-roofed cottages, making you feel like royalty. Visitors can also tour the castle’s large collection of historic weapons and armor, which includes guns, lances, swords and full suits of armor. Other visitors enjoy the vaulted ceilings, ornate carved wooden doors, tea sets, antique furniture and chairs emblazoned with regal crests.
