The castle or earlier castle complex has been beautifully restored. There are often classical and other unusual and demanding concerts in the library, in the castle chapel or even open air. Plus organic food and drinks, great tours through the palace and to the water rams. There is always something to do here.

The Renaissance-Baroque garden with its seven terraces was mentioned as "Himmelgarten" as early as 1529 and was owned by the Stromer von Reichenbach family for centuries. From 1997 onwards, the increasing deterioration of the historical complex was counteracted and after extensive reconstruction, the former castle park became the "Himmelgarten" animal cemetery in spring 2000. The newly built historic entrance portal was inaugurated in 2004. The “Himmelgarten” animal memorial will be closed from January 1, 2020.

Grünsberg near Altdorf is a castle complex that dates back to the 13th century and has been expanded into a representative country estate by various Nuremberg patrician families since the 16th century. The fortified seat was built on Reichsgut before 1231, probably on behalf of the Reich. The Reichsministeriale Albertus Rindesmule de Nurnberch was assigned to the castle and was called 1231 Rindesmule de Grundisperc. The last owner of Grünsberg Castle, Wolfgang Stromer von Reichenbach, had laid down in his legacy the conversion of the estate and castle into a public non-profit foundation under civil law. This was implemented in 2000 in order to preserve this nationally important monument with its valuable inventory for posterity and to make it accessible to the public as far as possible. de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schloss_Gr%C3%BCnsberg

Burg Grünsberg was built on a sloping to Schwarzach mountain spur. The castle complex developed from the 13th century and especially after the 16th century to a representative country estate. She was in the possession of the Wittelsbacher for a long time, but came in Nuremberg in 1504. Several Nuremberg patrician families are listed as lords before Grünsberg came into the possession of the patrician family Stromer von Reichenbach. Schloss Grünsberg can be visited as part of guided tours, whereby a look into the forecourt is always possible.

Grünsberg Castle dates from the Hohenstaufen era. The oldest known documentary mention was 1231. In the War of the Bavarian Succession, Grünsberg fell to the free imperial city of Nuremberg in 1504 - like the whole of the Nuremberg region. On this occasion, the upper floors, which consisted of half-timbered, burned down completely to the foundation walls. In 1561 the rebuilding of the palace was finished. Therefore, the outside of the Palas is a Renaissance building. In 1660 the property passed to the Paumgartner family as a maternal inheritance. The last Paumgartner undertook a major rain-style renovation in honor of his young, second wife, Sophie. Since then, Grünsberg has been a castle on the outside and a castle on the inside. In 1754 Sophie's daughter from her second marriage married Carl Christoph Stromer von Reichenbach. As a result, Grünsberg Castle was owned by the Stromer von Reichenbach patrician family until 2000. Grünsberg Castle can be visited on guided tours all year round, concerts and other cultural events take place in summer. A visit can be wonderfully combined with a short hike through the surrounding fauna and flora habitat Stromerwald with the wild and romantic Devil's Gorge.

The extension of the castle to a palace complex took place in the period from 1717 to 1723 under the last member of the patrician Paumgartner family, Johann Paul III. Paumgartner. The complex also received its important stucco ceilings, the stair tower on the main building, the tower on the north-east corner, further in 1723 the gatehouse to the main castle and finally the buildings in the outer bailey. Even if Paumgartner undertook fundamental conversions, it is astonishing that he always retained the basic form of the medieval castle - quite atypical for the architectural preferences of his time - and even expanded it in some cases in an obviously historicizing manner. Outside the castle, a baroque garden was created in front of the southern wall, which is badly damaged today and therefore closed off, the Sophienquelle and the straight avenue leading to it.
