Lichtenstein Castle

Built in the 19th century to honor the medieval knights of Lichtenstein, this is not the oldest of the castles long shot, but it is built on a 12th century foundation.  The original castle fell into disrepair over time, and was selected for rebuilding to honor the knights of the days of old. Lichtenstein is not to largest or most famous castle, but it is known as  the “Fairytale Castle in Baden-Württemberg”, a reference to Neuschwanstein Castle, the most famous castle in Germany.  It is also called the little brother of Neuschwanstein.
