4.7/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web
Lichtenstein Castle, a castle built on a cliff, has been destroyed and rebuilt twice. Originally built around 1200, the castle is now owned by the Dukes of Urach. Inside the castle, you can see an impressive collection of historic weapons and armor. While this castle is smaller than other German castles, you will be awed by the structure and the surrounding environment's beauty. A treetop adventure course near the castle offers fun for more adventurous visitors.

  • In the fairy tale Castle, built on a cliff in a castle, so very helpful. Without a car and it is hard to go. You can rent the Japan Guide Germany English tour is in the Castle. Come are the featured Castle.

  • Small and cute, not in the way but worth a visit. They close at 5.30pm but from November they close at 6 
  • Because we were already several times in the Castle and not least because of the enormous crowd and the long wait to the next management we visited this time only the Castle courtyard and enjoyed, then still a short walk outdoors. Here you again to go to enjoy the great views.

  • Tiny fairy tale castle built over a tiny rock with stunning views. Prices are: 2eur to park, 7eur/person admission fee. As the castle is so small you are only allowed to walk freely around it, but the castle itself can only be visited in the guided tour (included in the entrance fee) The toor is available only in German, but they give you a paper with the information the guide provides in English, Spanish and some other languages in case you don't understand German properly. You're not supposed to take pictures inside the castle but the guides don't really mind as long as you don't interrumpt the tour. The only thing we missed from the tour is that you're only shown the first two floors, no chance to visit the third floor or the castle tower. An absolute must if you're around.
  • Beaultiful place. It's a fast and enjoyable tour.
  • This is a castle I always take our visiting friends to, it hangs on the side of a cliff and has a spectacular view. Take the tour, you won't regret it. It is a quick drive from Stuttgart, and there are hiking trails located around the forest as well.
  • A bit overpriced local tour, but nice castle. Photos are not allowed inside the castle.Must see.
