Welcome back!

The second castle is actually a hunting lodge.  Hubby and I visited this one last fall and told Amazing Daughter about it.  She wanted to check it out.  It is so worth a repeat visit!

This is Lichtenstein Castle.  (I was playing with my camera!!!)  It is on the side of a mountain.  So very cool!

This is the outer part.  The different shades of the stone.  Aging perfectly.

From walking up the hill it looks tall and lean.

Love the draw bridge!  This is the actual lodge.  You entered through these doors.

Another look at the support columns that are needed to support the lodge on the side of this mountain.

It was the simply things like this that makes this just a great place to visit.

I found this fascinating.  I have no clue what it was.  Just a random stone column in the yard.  Makes you wonder what it was holding up.

On the wall surrounding the lodge, they had a lot of this metal gargoyles.  I find it hard to believe that they are authentic to the castle.  But they are fun!

What a view!

There are several buildings on the grounds.  This is the path to one of them.  Love the stone walls with the moss.

Here is the front of the building.  Don’t you just love the doors? (Yes, I was playing with my camera again!)

The stairs on the side of the building.

As with the Burg Hohenzollern, we were not allowed to take pictures inside.  The interior was ‘quaint’ and very personable for a castle anyways.  We loved that it had its one ‘beer hall/pub’.  Just what a group of  men need after a long day hunting!

We had a wonderful day.  Of course, we had to eat!  I will show you that tomorrow!  Stay tuned!
