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

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

    We recommend the ascent to the castle via the Dohlenstein from Kahla:
    Very nice panorama during the whole tour.
    Good footwear recommended

    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.

    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.

    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!
