Romantic Revival in the Age of Technology
Inspired by Wilhelm Hauff’s romantic novel "Lichtenstein", my great-grandfather Count Wilhelm of Württemberg, Duke of Urach, had Lichtenstein Castle constructed on the historical foundation walls of a medieval knights' castle.
With great attention to detail, Lichtenstein Castle and its neo-Gothic architecture is nothing short of an homage to the middle ages.
In the name of the ducal family of Urach, I would like to thank you most sincerely for your visit, with which you support the upkeep and restoration of this historical building.
