Tips

    Worth seeing! The Leuchtenburg lies high above the Saale valley. It grants a wide all-round view from the Harz to the Thuringian Forest. Within its castle walls it houses a museum on the subject of Thuringian porcelain and its 800-year history. The porcelain town of Kahla, which lies at the foot of the castle, impresses with its historic city center.

    Great view and well preserved castle complex. Outer walk freely accessible, entrance to the castle quite expensive.

    Perfect for celebrating a Christmas party, for example with the company.

    We recommend the ascent to the castle via the Dohlenstein from Kahla:

    Very nice panorama during the whole tour.
    Good footwear recommended

    The light castle is located high above the Saale valley near Kahla. It is considered one of the most beautiful castles in Thuringia

    There is a great porcelain exhibition at the castle that is related to the city of Kahla.
    Whoever climbs the keep enjoys a gigantic 360 ° panorama.

    One of the most beautiful museums in Thuringia! You should definitely make a detour to the keep, the climb is tough, but the view is great!

    The Leuchtenburg is situated above a picturesque landscape. A hike through the surrounding region is worth a recommendation.

    Nice hiking trails to the Leuchtenburg, around the Leuchtenburg there is a panorama path which I can highly recommend. You can also go into the castle itself, there is also an exhibition of Kahla porcelain and there is also a restaurant. The view from the Leuchtenburg is terrific.

    The light castle is a highlight. The museum is open all year round.

    The entrance fee to the castle grounds of 15 euros per person is absolutely worth it from our point of view

    The art of the architecture particularly appealed to us here, the new extensions, which were designed in a very modern way, to connect them with the old historical walls in which the permanent exhibition “Porcelain Worlds in Leuchtenburg” is located. Bridges connect the exhibition areas in the old and new building.

    The Leuchtenburg, a historic castle and a porcelain museum with many highlights
    at the same time, it's worth it.

    The castle is a highlight. Unfortunately, you have to pay the full entrance fee to be able to eat in the Burgschänke.
