Hardenburg Castle belongs to the most impressive castles of Palatinate. Even though being a ruin, the castle still is a tremendous complex. Hardenburg Castle was built before 1214 to protect the monastery Limburg. From the 13th until the 18th century the castle was inhabited by the Counts and later Dukes of Leiningen. Out of this lineage many bailiffs were brought up.
