Like many of the castles and fortresses in Germany, Lichtenstein Castle was built on the ruins of a ruined castle dating back to the 1200s. It sits on top of a cliff in the Swabian Alb Mountain range, and just like Neuschwanstein Castle, it looks like it belongs in a fairytale.
One of France's most rugged regions, Brittany(Bretagne) is a fascinating mix of spectacular coastline, ancient towns, magical islands and inland woods. A Celtic duchy for more than one thousand years before its annexation to France in 1532, it is a land rich in culture, tradition and history. It is home to Festival Interceltique de Lorient, a world renowned Celtic festival.
