Lebenberg Castle

Tscherms, Italy

Lebenberg Castle is located in the midst of vineyards at the slopes of the Marlinger mountain. It was built by Herrn von Marling in the 13th century and in the course of time, mainly in the 16th and 17th century, adapted and enlarged to a palace of an impressive size.

The castle is private property and can be visited. Worthwhile seeing is a fresco in the knight’s hall, which depicts the genealogical tree of the the Fuchs family, who were the owners of the palace until 1826, over 12 generations, and the medieval collection of weapons.

molto bello anche se abbiamo potuto visitarne solo una parte perché abitato dai proprietari. Giardino esterno e vista panoramica molto rilassanti, la guida è stata molto cortese e simpatica, all'interno non si possono scattare foto, comunqie un bel ricordo.

Fascinating castle from 1200 and the guide did a great job of bringing it to life (in German and Italian). Well worth a visit.

Trencín Castle

Trenčín Castle is relatively large renovated castle, towering on a steep limestone cliff directly above the city of Trenčín. It is a dominant feature not only of Trenčín, but also of the entire Považie region. The castle is a national monument.

History of the castle cliff dates back to the Roman Empire, what is proved by the inscription on the castle cliff proclaiming the victory of Roman legion against Germans in the year 179.

Today’s castle was probably built on the hill-fort. The first proven building on the hill was the Great Moravian rotunda from the 9th century and later there was a stone residential tower, which served to protect the Kingdom of Hungary and the western border. In the late 13th century the castle became a property of Palatine Matúš Csák, who became Mr. of Váh and Tatras.

Matúš Csák of Trenčín built a tower, still known as Matthew’s, which is a dominant determinant of the whole building.
