Discover mysterious castle Giebichenstein at nightfall with a torch in hand.
All the attention during the tour is on this fortress on the Saale river that is shrouded in legend and is one of the most significant structures along the Straße der Romanik (Road Romanesque) in Halle as well as the oldest fortification along the Saale.
Walking the rounds along old walls and vaulted ceilings by torchlight, the history of the castle comes alive again. With a little imagination you might hear the wind whisper an old German poem through the trees: "Da steht eine Burg überm Thale und schaut in den Strom hinein. Das ist die fröhliche Saale, das ist der Giebichenstein.“
