The weather has been very rainy lately, which makes exploring difficult and wet. We didn't let that stop us, we grabbed our raincoats and umbrellas and headed out to explore Schloss Lichtenstein which was about 1 hour from the house. We explored the castle's courtyard and captured some nice pictures even in the rain. The best part was I got to share it with my favorite person, my hubby!
A little about the castle from their website:
Lichtenstein Castle is a historicist castle built in the 19th century. It is located at the edge of the Swabian Alps, 817 metres above sea level. Inspired by Wilhelm Hauff’s novel “Lichtenstein” Count Wilhelm of Württemberg had it built in 1840-42. The site around the neo-Gothic castle is composed of other buildings from the 19th century, a chapel, an ample garden and the romantic courtyard. In the bedchambers of the count the opulent grandeur of late romanticism’s domestic culture appears at its best. Built to pay homage to medieval times, Lichtenstein Castle is also known as “Württemberg´s fairytale castle” as it adheres to romanticism in style and furnishing.
