Landstuhl Travel Tip:
Nanstein Castle (Burg Nanstein)

Nanstein Castle (Burg Nanstein)
Nanstein Castle, Landstuhl

Formerly a fortified protection of land and people, the castle is now the symbol of the city. Nanstein is one of the most famous castles in the Pfalz, due to a spectacular siege in 1523 when the lord of the castle Franz of Sickingen died. The fall of Nanstein is a symbol for a final end of the decline of the castles in the Pfalz. The first reference to the castle was made in a legal document dating from 1189 but the castle is certainly older than this.
