    Lords of Lichtenberg builders of the castle (1197)
    Lichtenberg Castle Castle from the Staufer period
    Barons from and to Weiler Burgherren since 1483
    (1) Lichtenberg Castle is located on a spur of the Löwenstein Mountains (370 m above sea level) (2) The driveway from the east with an old sheepfold and a 30 m high keep, the last refuge of the residents. (3) Over a bridge with 3 arches, the last one used to be a drawbridge, you can reach the Zwinger through a first gate. After the Peasants' War in the 16th century, this outwork was built as further protection. (4) The moat, separated from the valley by a small wall, protected the castle from the main direction of attack. You could shoot at enemies while crossing the ditch. (5) Through a corridor, formerly closed with two gates, the visitor enters the inner courtyard, which is well worth seeing. The half-timbered storey was added in the 16th century. Between the entrance and the cellar exit in the right corner, a door leads to Dürnitz (5). Matern Feuerbacher's letter of protection, which saved the castle from being destroyed by the peasants in 1525, also hangs in the hall. (6) In the left corner under the tower, an inconspicuous door leads into the castle chapel with frescoes from the 13th century and a stone cross from 1573, which the Barons of Weiler erected here in one of the most beautiful castle chapels in southern Germany. A staircase leads to the 1st floor with the living rooms. From here, continue up to get into the tower via a bridge on the 2nd floor. From the top you have a wonderful all-round view over the Bottwartal and the Löwenstein mountains. (7) In the back courtyard is the fountain under the clock. A second tower delimits the 3.50 m thick shield wall and prevents it from being climbed. The rooms of the castle can be rented for festivities.

    Opening hours:
    Sundays from March to October 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. - admission 3 € Guided tour of the castle every 1st Sunday of the month Tel.: 07062/4017

    Those coming from the east can take a moderate ascent via Kleinaspach via Sinzenburg and Neuwirtshaus. So you don't necessarily have to take the steep Weinbergweg from the farm. The ascent behind Lembach (east of the vineyards high) is not that steep either.

    The route to the right of the vineyards is recommended for the ascent from Hof and Lembach. It is also very steep in parts, but it is more moderate than the route to the left of the vineyards!

    The steep climb through the vineyards is worthwhile because of the great view

    For the exhausting driveway you will be rewarded with a wonderful view of the Bottwartal.
