      Levenburg - pretty young building, erected in the XVII century, although many attribute it to a medieval castle. Near the palace is the armory where you can find weapons and armor XV-XVI centuries, and the chapel, which is the tomb of the founder castle.

      Levenburgsky castle often called "lock-counterfeiting." The mastermind behind the castle-counterfeiting itself is William IX, who commissioned the architect to build a building that could be compared with the English medieval palaces. The castle looks like a fortress, but in fact is not a fortress.

      In order to implement ideas of William IX, the architect had to specifically go to England for a detailed study of the ruins of the English forts, and a plan for building a nice Levenberg and the adjacent garden. The whole complex is a a beautiful garden in the English style, with thematic branches. This first of these objects in Europe. In the garden you can see the ruins of the palace fake, fake aqueducts of Rome, as well as the temples of Greece.
