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.
