    The castle complex is freely accessible and can be visited at any time. From the still existing main castle tower you have a very nice panoramic view of the Gleiberger Land. In the buildings in the castle courtyard there is a restaurant with a beer garden.
    Guided tours are offered upon prior notification to the Gleiberg Association.
