Gleiberg Castle history
In 1103 King Henry V, Holy Roman Emperor conquered the castle and destroyed Gleiberg Castle. The castle was restored and rebuilt in the 12th century. During the Thirty Years' War, the castle was destroyed in 1646 by the troops of the Landgrave of Hesse-Kassel. Since it no longer had a military significance, it was not restored. Since 1879, the ruins of the castle have belonged to the Gleiberg Association, which seeks to preserve them.
