Anybody know where I can find pictures or other information on Lichtenstein Castle, I believe in Bavaria? I saw a photo in a book sometime back, and was intrigued. On the whole, I've never been a big fan of German castlery, but there's something about this one...I must find more info on it.

More pictures:
Please note that this castle, built in the same style as the more famous Neu Schwanstein in Bavaria in the 19th century, has nothing to do with a medieval castle, even if there stood once a 'real' castle at the same place some centuries before. Why do you like especially (or only) this one? It looks, in my opinion, like Disneyland ...

Well, Merlin, I have no idea...just something got me. I always thought that the tower did look a little out of place. After following Gordon's link, I found out why, and why it is so like Neuschwandstein...The big tower was a 19th century addition. I wondered if it was defensible, and after reading a little, found it fell twice, even tho it os on nasty terrain to attack from. I think it is a good looking castle, but now that I have learned more of it, my interest has waned. thanks for the link, tho.
