    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.

    Free entry. Lookout tower freely accessible. Various seating options to relax. Well maintained facility. Then go down through the city gate and through the old town.

    The castle tower was unfortunately closed on July 27th, 2021, there was no indication whether it might be open on other days.
    But you also have a view from the lower, freely accessible castle areas.

    Gleiberg Castle, located on a striking 308 m high basalt cone, is the landmark of the Gleiberg region that can be seen from afar and is a popular destination.
    Information about the castle can be found here: burg-gleiberg.de
    Castle and observation tower was open on a Monday, free entry. The view from above is worth it!
