    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 the 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.

    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!

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

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

    The castle Gleichen was first mentioned in 1034 in the annals of the monastery Reinhardsbrunn as "Gliche". The name is probably derived from Celtic, which means rock (Wikipedia).
