Tips

  • Rombea

    The Lichtenegg castle ruins are believed to be a medieval aristocratic castle above the Lichtenegg village of the same name. The castle was first mentioned in a document 700 years ago. The castle ruins are freely accessible at all times, and the visit is free. The ruin has belonged to the municipality of Birgland since 1998 and is being restored with private funds, among other things. There are showcases with found objects in front of the ruins. When the weather is nice, you have a magnificent view, for example as far as the Fichtel Mountains. Be sure to enjoy the view. There are also tables and benches there to rest.

  • Great renovated castle ruins with a beautiful panorama, for example in the Franconian and Hersbrücker Switzerland and starting point of several hiking trails. In winter you can cross-country skiing (groomed trails).

  • "Lichtenegg Castle Ruins". From up there you have a wonderful view of the valley and the entire area. The castle was first mentioned over 700 years ago, but is probably much older. The castle ruins can only be reached via a “private path” owned by the Raum host family. There you can take care of yourself in refrigerators and enjoy the local specialties.

  • Below the ruins at the former inn "Zum alten Schloß Wirt" you can take a break (in winter you can also warm up). There are now vending machines with all sorts of drinks and snacks. Please be honest and pay what you taste!
