Great place to visit! Not only was it free but also had great views. The tower was being remodeled so we missed that party but did not feel like it took away from the experience. The church was picturesque also!

Spent a very lovely evening celebrating a birthday. The restaurant was clean, lovely and the atmosphere romantic. The food was good and the wine even better. A nice quiet evening for two.

Had a great weekend at the Burg Thallichtenberg. We stayed at the youth hostel on the grounds of the fortress. One of the best with great food and service.

This castle was much bigger than I anticipated. I spent about 2 hours wandering around. It's absolutely beautiful!

Loved Burg Lichtenberg not only for the historic experience of the castle, but also the very cool museums that are on the grounds! We particularly enjoyed the museum of 19th century traveling musicians! Great place to visit!
