One of the most recognized landmarks in Baden-Wuttemberg in Germany is this impressive Gothic Revival castle, the Lichtenstein Castle. Constructed in the 1840s, it is perched on the cliff in Swabian Alb surrounded by majestic views of mountain ranges around. Anyone who visits this place will be mesmerized not only the architecture of the castle or its position on the mountain but also by the exquisite views.
Right now, the castle is owned and managed by the Dukes of Urach but it is open to the public. It houses an extensive collection of historic armor and weaponry.
