Did ANY Royals from East Germany get castles back?

On various threads and googling around I have read that some of the royals whose territories were in the former E. Germany got some compensation for the property the Communists had confiscated after WW II once Germany reunited.. And I know that some who were lucky enough to have had land on both sides of the East/West divide, i.e. the Hohenzollerns and Coburgs, always retained at least one castles. But have any of the German royals regained castles in the East? Do any of them even want to, given how difficult they are to maintain?

There is some discussion of restitution in the Royal House of Saxony thread, from post #48 on.

Churburg Castle

Anyone visited the lovely churburg castle in Südtirol?
Churburg, dates back to 1253. Successive generations of the Matsch and Trapp families added to the original fortress. Churburg is best known, however, for its impressive armory. Churburg holds over 50 suits of armor, making this collection the world's largest private armory.

I really enjoyed seeing this beautiful castle in 2001 when I visited south Tirol for my brother's wedding.
Took some great shots! Inside was real impressive as well.

No surprise the castle in Disney's Snow white looks like Neuschwanstein. It was Disney's inspiration while making the movie.

Does anybody have any photos of the inside of the "Sleeping Beauty" castle? (I forget what it's called.) It inspired Walt Disney's design of the castle in his movie of the same name. I looked on Google and wikipedia, and it seems all the photos I find are of the exterior. I don't know if it's Habsburg or Hohenzollern...

Do you mean Neuschwanstein? It was once owned by the Wittelsbach and is today owned by the Bayerische Verwaltung der staatlichen Schlösser, Gärten und Seen, so basically the state of Bavaria.

An example of late-19th-century technology in the Castle of Neuschwanstein is the electric bell system.
Weikersheim Castle is situated on the River Tauber in the province of Baden-Wurttemberg, the seat of the Counts of Hohenlohe.
In 1586 Count Wolfgang II of Hohenlohe began the conversion of the medieval moated castle into a prestigious residence.
Ludwigsburg Palace (Schloss Ludwigsburg) in the town of Ludwigsburg is a castle that was built between 1704 and 1733.
It was known as the "Swabian Versailles".
In 1718 Scloss Ludwigsburg became the official residence.
Under Duke Eberhard Ludwig of Wurttemberg, the architecture was Austo-Hungarian and the décor was Baroque.
