The Leuchtenberg Castle Ruins is the largest and best-preserved castle ruin in the Upper Palatinate, (Germany ) . It is located on the hill above the city of Leuchtenberg , near the border with the Czech Republic . The castle was built at the turn of the 13th/14th century by the Lords of Leuchtenberg. When the last of the Lords died, Leuchtenberg Castle deteriorated and there was a fire (in 1842) which destroyed a big part of it. In 2003, a charity organization was founded whose goal is to protect and maintain the castle. At present, the medieval fort of Leuchtenberg is open to public. It serves for cultural events, such as the winter Christmas light festival and a summer festival.
