Leuchtenburg Castle

Leuchtenburg Castle towers 400 metres high above the valley, visible from far afield. This castle complex is almost 1000 years old and here you can feel the breath of history and discover internationally renowned architecture.

On the "Skywalk of Wishes", you float over the valley and you can "break something and mend your luck", as the German saying goes.

The exhibitions are of exceptional interest. Artists from all over the world have created seven worlds of discovery which make porcelain quite magical. You will be awed by the sight of the largest vase in the world.  And no-one can fail to feel a spirit of adventure in the search for treasures at the bottom of the sea.

"One of the most unusual and modern exhibitions!" was the praise given  to Leuchtenburg Porcelain Worlds by the international jury of the European Museum Council.

Concerts, performances and lectures are held regularly at Leuchtenburg Castle. Lovers can also take their wedding vows in this very romantic setting.
