Castles of Germany
Neuschwanstein may be perhaps the most famous German castle, but there are certainly more to admire! Take Lichtenstein Castle, a beautiful example standing atop a rock spur 2,600 feet above the Swabian Alps. It’s a Württembergian national monument and was also the film location for the 2009 Brother’s Grimm-inspired movie, Sleeping Beauty.

Image of the Month
At either the North or Baltic seas, with sand between the toes, a fresh salty breeze and the sky above, our beaches are far away from everyday life and offer relaxation and beautiful scenery. Enjoy a weekend at our coastline and share your own images of Germany with #germanytourism.
