Leuchtenburg Castle


800 years old Lemgo old town

Visitors are sure to get their money’s worth at Leuchtenburg Castle in Thuringia: The well-preserved medieval castle complex offers a museum as well as the permanent exhibition Porzellanwelten Leuchtenburg and the spectacular walkway of desires that juts out into the valley with a fantastic view. The good condition of the castle is due to the fact that it was used almost without interruption since the year 1200, among other things as financial administration, as prison, as reformatory and poorhouse, as penitentiary and youth hostel and as hotel. Nowadays, the Leuchtenburg, which towers about 400 metres above the Saale and is also called the “Queen of the Saale Valley”, is characterised by the interplay of the Middle Ages, architecture and design.
