Purpose of the Leuchtenburg Foundation

The aims of the foundation Leuchtenburg are to support the historic monument Leuchtenburg, to make it always accessible for the public and to maintain the museum, to grant support for preservation works and to enliven the castle culturally. The Leuchtenburg is an indispensable monument of public interest for the region. It acts as an indicator for the tourism in the Saale area and accommodates a significant museum. Around Easter, a medieval spectacle, which is known and loved far across the frontiers, is held that has attracted over 10,000 visitors during the past 17 years on four days each.

The foundation Leuchtenburg will use their best endeavours to preserve the Leuchtenburg as a historic monument, expand it, improve the infrastructure, support and maintain the museum, develop a sustainable concept for the future and include combatants and sponsors. For that, it needs great support! We ask politics, economy and all citizens who are interested in the future of the Leuchtenburg to render outstanding services to it, grant objective and financial support and provide effective help.
