Lichtenstein Castle…

Lichtenstein Castle is situated on a cliff located near Honau on the Swabian Alb, Baden-Württemberg, Germany.

Historically, there has been a castle on the site since around 1200. It was twice destroyed, once in the Reichskrieg’s War of 1311 and again by the city-state of Reutlingen in 1381. The castle was not reconstructed and subsequently fell to ruin.

In 1802, the land came into the hands of King Frederick I of Württemberg, who built a hunting lodge there. By 1837, the land had passed to his nephew Duke Wilhelm of Urach, Count of Württemberg, who, inspired by Wilhelm Hauff's novel Lichtenstein [1], added the current castle in 1840–42. The romantic Neo-Gothic design of the castle was created by the architect Carl Alexander Heideloff.

Today, the castle is still owned by the Dukes of Urach, but is open to visitors. The castle contains a large collection of historic weapons and armour.

FAMILY ROOTS

When Hironaka Ogawa made the decision to cut down two trees to allow him to build his dream house, he didn’t do so lightly. The trees had been connected to his family for over 35 years - and he felt he needed to honour them. His answer was to reinstall them with pride of place in his new front room - and create something beautiful out of his actions. The result, a simple truth. There’s little distinction between you and your surroundings. Respect them and you can respect yourself.
