Lichtenstein Castle

One of the most beautiful castles I have seen in Europe with a breathtaking view and serene garden is Schloss Lichtenstein.

In 1802, King Fredirick I of Württemberg built a hunting lodge located on a cliff in the Swabian Alb, Baden-Württemberg (Germany). In 1837, the land was given to his nephew Duke Wilhelm of Urach, Count of Württemberg. Then in 1840, Duke Wilhelm of Urach built a Neo- Gothic castle designed by architect Carl Alexander Heideloff.

The castle, which has large collections of historic weapons and armors, is still owned by the Dukes of Urach.
