Lichtenstein Castle is known as the "fairytale castle of Baden-Württemberg, Germany". Lichtenstein Castle (Schloss Lichtenstein in German) is not famous outside of Germany, but it’s known as the fairytale castle of Baden-Württemberg and is worth a visit. It’s not nearly as famous as Heidelberg Castle or the Residenz in Munich. It also doesn’t have a claim to fame like Burghausen Castle, the longest in all of Europe. But don’t mistake its relative obscurity for uninteresting. Here are seven facts that will make your visit to this reconstructed medieval castle more enjoyable.
Estonia Järva County
A beautiful old manor in a gorgeous part of Estonia. The location of "Kila-Kola laat", a fair in the summer for antiques and old property, which has been in Seidla manor for 20 years!
Estonia Põlva County
Mooste Manor, established at the time when the Nolcken family ruled the area, lies on the shore of Lake Mooste. Beside the beautiful manor house you will find the pride of Mooste Manor, one of the most impressive auxiliary building ensembles built in the historistic style. Most of the buildings are constructed from stones and decorated with brick. An English style park adds to the appearance of the manor. The manor house accommodates a school, and the former woodworking workshop has been renovated into the Mooste Manor Guest House. A restorer’s workshop operates in the old workhorse stable, and the Centre for Arts and Social Practice occupies the steward’s house, while the former barn has been transformed into a 500-seat concert hall.

Trosky ruin was a volcano 16 million years ago. Each top erupted once, Panna is slightly younger than Baba. At first a massive cone was formed from the erupted stone and then the chimney was filled with basalt melt. Two types of rock are noticeable at the foot of Panna and in the masonry. The cone residues have brown colour and contain pieces of sandstone placed in the top subsoil. Basalt (olivine nephelinite) is black and grey with locally developed columnar parting.
