This castle has been in my life since I was born. Family trips, school trips, taking visitors or just go there and enjoy the view. It's always fun to visit Burg Lichtenberg or Kusel castle like many Americans like to call it.

Neat ruins of a castle deep in the forest. You can really see the whole footprint of the buildings as well as a catapult and a large well.
