  • I've been several times in summer, typical visit when someone in Spain comes, arrive faster, climbing up the Hill of the castle is a pleasure, is in good condition and also has a small restaurant

  • The castle is not big, the single is very beautiful. The first glimpse of the castle's drawbridge made me think of the ice and snow castle in the snow and ice. The castle overlooks the city and is spectacular. Many children play with snow in winter, suitable for family outings

  • Our trip to Europe the maximum cover visits to the castles. Liechtenstein Castle I've seen hundreds of times in pictures and wanted to personally visit and inspect it. And here we are in Germany and, after inspecting the Hohenzollern Castle, pulled up to the Castle, Liechtenstein. Put the car into the parking lot near the restaurant (free for some reason) and went for a visit, but ... the castle is closed (turned out to be (so we searched outside only to discover that the current building erected just over 150 years ago in accordance with fantasies of architects, how could this look in the 15-16 centuries, but, still, a wonderful Castle!

  • An amazing small castle, which was a fort and a hunter house before. Stunning views from the top and curious artifacts inside. It worth the travel to visit with the family during the weekend (few hours are just enough to spend in it). There are the options to visit just for outside or with a guided tour every 30 min within the fortress. Just few meters away there is a climbing place and playgrounds and of course a place for quick bites (typical German food) and drinks. Also there is paid and free parking options(the latter is few meters before the main entrance)
  • Wow. This castle is really beautiful. You get a nice view from the castle. The parking lot is good and there are restaurants outside the castle. There is an entry fee to the grounds and also a seperate fee if you want to visit the inside of the castle. It was a good trip to the castle. The paintings and armoury inside calls for a visit to this alteast once.
  • Absolutely worth visiting if you are situated in the south of Germany! Just be sure you have proper shoes on as the only way up is by foot unless you have your own mode of transportation!
  • My favorite castle we have visited so far! It's fairly small compared to some of the tourist-areas, but the castle is beautiful. It's also way less crowded! Personally, that's what made this castle my favorite. There weren't a ton of people shoving each other to get a look.
  • Amazing "fairytale" castle sitting on top of a rock, privately owned and has been used as a film set on more than one occasion. Well worth a visit but the guided tour I don't think was worth the money although it is the only way to get to see the inside of the building.
