    The ruined castle Gleichen on the southern edge of the Thuringian Basin, together with the Mühlburg and the Wachsenburg, is probably the best-known ensemble of castles in Germany, the Drei Gleichen. The name "equals" is due to the Celtic word "resembling" for rocks or to the topographical similarity of castles on three conical mountains. The transfer of the name to the entire castles has been documented since the 18th century. However, the three plants never shared a common ownership.
    Admission: 3.00 € (as of 2018)
    Opening hours: 1st April - 31st October
    10.00am-6.00pm daily

    The entrance is probably worthwhile mainly for castle ruins freak. Everyone else can enjoy the grounds and the views from the outside.

    Beautifully restored and within the tower a nice little natural history exhibition, the view from the tower is abslot worthwhile! The 3.00 Euro entrance are well invested!

    From the Wachsenburg parking lot (fees paid) to Wanderslebener castle .... through the valley and back on top of the hilltop back.
    The Mühlburg I found, including way there, boring

    The castle of Gleichen including the outside area and the castle museums in Mühlburg are only open from March to October from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There is a lot to discover on the Mühlburg in the outdoor area.

    A great castle. With a small but nice museum. Also very interesting for children.

    The castle Gleichen was first mentioned in 1034 in the annals of the monastery Reinhardsbrunn as "Gliche". The name probably comes from the Celtic resembling what rocks means (Wikipedia).

    Unfortunately, you can not get into the castle ruins - I thought it was a pity.

    Beautiful castle with a wonderful view, easily accessible on foot or by bike, ideal resting place thanks to numerous seating options and always worth a visit.
