Tips

  • Rombea

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

    a cute little ruin that looks more like a small charming stone house with a great view. Beyond that in the forest there was probably more building structures. A wonderful place!

    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.
