Three castles Drei Gleichen

N 5052.147', E 1049.91'

Our rating: 6.40
Overall rating:
The complex of three castles located on the hills in the middle of the fields. The place is quite famous, as the castles are located near one of the German autobahns. Such a complex is not a unique phenomenon for Europe. Rich landowners often built castles and palaces next to each other, for example, there are Dornburg palaces in this region.

Drei Gleichen from German is translated as "three identical". In reality, the castles, are not the same. Only located on the identical hills.

They never belonged to the same owner and were united by the natural phenomenon. According to legend, in 1231 there was a ball lightning, which set fire to all three castles. In memory of this event, a medieval show "Dreinschlag" is held. During it, all three castles burn with a controlled fire and a big firework ends the show. The next date is August 22, 2020. Information about this event in German https://www.dreinschlag-drei-gleichen.de/.

It is curious that the first shows in 2002 - 2003 created emergency situations on the autobahn, so now it is blocked for several hours.
