    The first mention took place in 961. The castle is visible from afar and from the top you have a fantastic view of the Saale.

    There is a castle above the valley
        And look into the stream,
        That's the happy hall,
        That's the Giebichenstein.
        I confessed so many times,
        Valleys and hills flourished,
        And since then in all countries
        I never saw the world so beautiful!
    (Joseph von Eichendorff)

    According to a legend, Ludwig the Springer (1042-1123) was imprisoned here. He should the Count Palatine Friedrich III. have stabbed. When he was about to be executed, he saved himself with a bold leap from the castle tower into the Saale. Since then he has been called Ludwig the Springer.

    Simply a "classic" from Halle. Nice view of the Saale.
