Schloss Liebenstein - Lovestone Castle

Lovestone Castle

Lovestone Castle will be the venue for our wedding. We chose it for good reasons:
It obviously has the right name, and we won't run out of electricity,
given the nuclear power station down the road...

Liebenstein is located in Swabia (Schwaben), in the South-Western part of Germany.
The surrounding area is a picturesque wine growing area along the banks of the Neckar river.
Stuttgart, the nearest major centre, is 33 km away.

map liebenstein

By car: From Stuttgart go on to the A 81 (northbound, i.e. direction Heilbronn),
take the exit "Ilsfeld", then go through Ilsfeld to Neckarwestheim.
You'll find a great map when you type in "Neckarwestheim" into the map finder from viamichelin
It should only take you about one hour, however, allow for more time. It can be a bit tricky...

By train: there are trains roughly every half an hour, for example, a train leaving "Stuttgart Hbf" at 11:15,
arrives in "Lauffen (Neckar)" at 11:52. You can find train connections on the website of the "Deutsche Bahn".
Don't bother pre-booking a ticket, you just have to buy it at the station before you board the train.
Tickets are € 7.20 (as per 30.05.05).
Then take a cab to Schloss Liebenstein, which will cost around € 15.- (Taxi Carrara 07133-5655)
