[Löwenburg Castle] Translated as “Lion’s Castle” is unique among all the castles in Germany in that it was conceived as a romantic medieval castle ruin. The design of Löwenburg Castle was based on a fantasy of Landgrave Wilhelm IX, but experts regard it a very important historical monument, because it was the first Neo-Gothic structure in the country.
