A castle like from a book. In this case, that's actually true. The castle from Wilhelm Hauff's novel "Lichtenstein" from 1826 provided the suggestion and template for the reconstruction of the Lichtenstein ruins in 1842. It also looks like this: a real fairytale castle built dangerously close to the slope.

You really should not miss the "Swabian Neuschwanstein" when you're in this corner of the Alb.
Our castle tour was good. A few nice anecdotes, would have liked to be a bit looser, but you were not showered with historical data and pedigrees. The rooms are consistently worth seeing and where else do you see a real Samurai armor? ;)

... and if you want to know more about the poet Wilhelm Hauff, the castle and the novel "Lichtenstein", "The Cold Heart", "Kalif Storch" or "The Fairytale of Little Muck", I recommend the small museum in Honau gemeinde-lichtenstein.de/Startseite/Freizeit+_+Tourismus/Wilhelm_Hauff_Museum.html

Above Honaus on the demolition edge of the Alb lies the fairytale Lichtenstein Castle. Everyone who had a model train had known as a Faller kit. The most beautiful view of the tower and the striking castle can be seen from the road up the mountain to Honau. There is always a lot going on here!
