Harburg Castle between Nördlingen and Donauwörth, high above the
river Wörnitz, is one of the few undestroyed german castles. Inside it, you will believe to be in the the middle ages. It´s real, not a 19th century
castle like Hohenzollern, Lichtenstein or Neuschwanstein.
Harburg Castle is one of the oldest and largest castle complexes in
Southern Germany. Situated along the Romantic Road it formed a very
important military stronghold already during the reign of the Staufer-Kings (1079-1272). Since 1731 Harburg Castle is in the possession of the Oettingen-Wallerstein family.

Castle Harburg is a must see! The castle is in excellent condition. The chapel is beautiful. The tour guide did a wonderful job. We visited approximately 15 castles in Germany during our 2 week visit and this was our favorite. Excellent restaurant on the premises, as well.
