[GERMANY.THUERINGEN 30347] The medieval castle Mühlburg in the village of Mühlberg was first mentioned in 704 AD. It is one of three medieval castles that are located on three isolated hill tops between Gotha and Arnstadt. The other two castles are Burg Gleichen and Wachsenburg Castle. Legend has it that during a spring thunderstorm in 1231 all three strongholds were set to flames by the same lightning bolt. Since then they are known as “Drei Gleichen” (three resembling ones).
