“Always fun to visit”
Review of Burg Lichtenberg

Attraction details
Reviewed 24 February 2018 via mobile

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.

Thankfully, they do not have all the safety barriers everywhere to wander around. However, this means that you have to keep a close eye on your kids.

The Lichtenberg “ruins” contains the castle grounds, including an intact tower you can climb to get a great 360 degree view of the entire surrounding area. There is also two museums, a chapel, a restaurant, and a hotel.
The grounds were free to park and free to enter. We had free reign throughout; the museums might have cost a couple euro but we didn’t enter those.
We toured the area right at sunset and got some great pictures of the low sun over the grounds.
This was a great place to spend a couple hours touring around for free.

My favorite go-to castle to get out of the house and be with nature. It has a nice playground, the price is great--free! And it has an excellent restaurant with seasonal dishes.... always wonderful soups! In beautiful countryside!

Nice that you can walk around and explore the ruins without having to pay a fee. We climbed to the top of the tower and took lots of pictures of the fantastic views! There's also a musical instrument museum on the grounds but it was being used for a wedding reception when we were there, may have to go back. The restaurant on the grounds was wonderful and the staff was super friendly!
