    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)

    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!

    Gleichen Castle is open again. Entry with 3 € for adults is ok. From the tower, which contains the small museum, you have a beautiful panoramic view.

    OPEN!
    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.

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

    The museum is located in the tower of the castle, from which you have a great view of Thuringia.

    Locals call the castle Wandersleber the same because it is one of the "Three Equals" in the area of the municipality of Wandersleben.

    The nature museum in the keep is nicely done, the view from the tower is great. The ruin is still worth visiting!

    Ruin of the castle of the Counts of Gleichen. It is called "Wandersleber Gleiche", as part of the "Three Equals". The castle ruins are located in the Thuringia Inselsberg national geopark. It dates from the 11th century and is therefore much younger than the Mühlburg opposite.The castle with the manor house was the ancestral seat and namesake of Derer von Gleichen until 1537.

    Although the gates remained locked for me on my last hike (luckily I know that it is also beautiful inside) the way up is sometimes very adventurous, but the view is indescribably great.

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