Tips

    The castle complex as part of the three equals can also be reached via the Schlosslaite. Once at the top, it offers a view over the sweet village of Mühlberg.

    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 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 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.

    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

    The Mühlburg is also worth a trip at night. Just enjoy the sunrise from there.
