    The castle ruins of the Mühlburg on the southern edge of the Thuringian Basin, together with the castle ruins in Gleichen and the Wachsenburg, form the probably most famous castle ensemble in Germany, the Drei Gleichen. The name "Gleichen" comes from the Celtic word "like" for rocks or the topographically similar situation of the castles on three cone-shaped mountains. The transfer of the name to the entire castle group has been documented since the 18th century. However, the three systems never had a common owner. Incidentally, the Mühlburg is the oldest castle in Thuringia.
    Admission: € 2.00 (as of 2018)

    The most unassuming of the three equals has become a highlight in the years following the fall of the Wall. With 2, - € admission for adults and 1, - € for children, it is also very attractive for families.

    The hike to the Mühlberg is really nice. From here you have a great view of Wachsenburg and the castle Gleichen.

    Beautiful ruin from which one has a good view of the surrounding area. Those who have enough time can come to the Ratskeller in Mühlberg

    Visiting the "Drei Gleichen" is always an absolute highlight. I find the Mühlburg very nice because you can also walk around outside. The view from the tower is of course magnificent. You can also sit down in the courtyard, take a break and enjoy the view.

    The Mühlburg is the oldest castle of the "Three Equals" and the oldest in Thuringia. It is mentioned in a document in a deed of donation from Duke Hedan II to the missionary and Bishop Wilibord of Utrecht from May 1, 704.

    The Radegundis chapel (restored remains of the foundation wall) next door is particularly interesting.

    The keep is 22 meters high and has a wall thickness of up to 2.7 meters.
    The diameter is approximately 7.4 meters.

    The Mühlburg is the oldest of the "Drei Gleichen". The prehistory probably goes back to 500 AD.
    It is the oldest surviving building in Thuringia.

    There is a museum from the Middle Ages on the castle grounds
    The tower can be climbed during opening times. The other two castles can be seen from here. A fountain is also on the premises.
    I can only recommend it to everyone to stop by and go hiking in the area 🚶

    From Mühlberg at the end of town towards Wechmar
    Restaurant Taubennest, recommended! Overnight possible! (not related or related?) Or in the center of the Ratskelier, on the market square.
