IN A NUTSHELL
WHAT: Lichtenstein Castle (Schloss)
WHERE: Near Reutlingen in the Swabian Alb, just south of Stuttgart
WHY: Precarious castle perched on the rim of a cliff high above the valley
WHEN: Any time of year
HOW: Via car from Stuttgart or elsewhere in Southern Germany
IF YOU LIKE THIS... Then you should take a look at nearby Hohenzollern Castle

Lichtenstein is a fantastic castle precariously perched high on the side of a cliff.  The Lichtenstein Castle was built in 1842 b the Count of Württemberg.  The Count drew his inspiration from the novel "Lichtenstein" (translated as white-colored stone).  The castle contains a large collection of historic weapons, armor, and treasures. 

Today's descendents of the Count still own the castle, but it is open to the public for tours.

The castle is open daily from April to October (9am to 5:30pm); weekends and holidays in February, March, and November (10am to 4pm).  The castle is closed in December and January.
