Liebenburg’s beauty inspired poets and it will certainly entice you with its historic majesty and natural beauty. Lakes, forests, and meadows form splendid backgrounds to manors and castles that still exude an air of timelessness and elegance.
Schloss Liebenberg, for instance, dates back to the 18th century, but looks like it was built yesterday. Inspired landscaping and gardens makes this castle well worth visiting. The good news is that you get to stay here if you so wish for this castle is now a hotel. Remember to book well in advance if you want to make your dream of living in a castle come true.
Liebenburg has more architectural attractions in store for you, though.
The Baroque Hoppenrade Castle is a moated castle which transports you back in time. The Liebenburg Church is of Gothic architectural design and is in the vicinity of the Castle Mountain Lion. Now this is something you really shouldn’t miss…
The Castle Mountain Lion is Baroque in style and has a moat with a drawbridge on it. You’re not going to believe what its current avatar is. Well, I might as well tell you — it’s a day care center. Don’t let that stop you from visiting this exciting historic venue.
Liebenburg’s war memorial and the Green Mountain memorial are well worth visiting, too.
The town has more than its share of elegant mansions and historic barns, mill, and distilleries that harks back to a worthy heritage. Check out the Vorlaubenhaus and you’ll see what I mean.
