    Old legend about Lichtenstein and Lichteneck: The Houbirg opposite on a rugged mountain was Lichtenstein Castle and further up in the valley the Lichteneck Castle. It is said that the owners of both castles gave a signal when merchants came with their goods down the valley on the road that leads from Nuremberg to Bohemia and then robbed them. At last both castles were broken by the Nuremberg; the last Lichtenstein man escaped to Bohemia and became the lord of the house in Lichtenstein.

    The castle ruins perched high above the town of Pommelsbrunn. A trip to the viewpoint is definitely worth it, because the view of the town and the Nuremberg land is simply fantastic.

    Also visit the castle ruins Lichtenegg, about 15 minutes away, further into the valley. In Haunritz there is a way to cool your feet, at a beautiful Kneipp facility, directly in the stream. And above is the castle ruins Lichtenegg, you go through it directly through the economy and get a nice overview of the other side of the valley. With good visibility, you can see the castle ruins Lichtenstein.

    Sundays there are in the nature friends house, coffee and cake.
    Unfortunately, it was only Saturday so we can not say how it tastes. However right at the Naturfreunde Haus there is a nice playground and seating for a rest.

    Well preserved ruin. I wonder where the castle was. The little house is more reminiscent of a chapel.
