Burgruine Vetzberg
Only about 1.5 kilometres apart and built on basalt blocks, the castles Gleiberg and Vetzberg shape a striking landscape. The Vetzberg castle complex was built as the second castle of the Gleiberg counts. The upper castle of Vetzberg Castle, first mentioned in 1226, was probably built between 1100 and 1150 and extended by the lower castle from the middle of the 13th century. The keep, the gable wall of the palace (main and multi-purpose building), parts of the castle walls and remains of the lower castle have been preserved. Translated with (free version)

Kimmel's Pensioner Tower by Klaus
June 20, 2021 · Community
Turm mit tollem Ausblick über Großen-Buseck und Gießen, mit dem Fahrrad leicht zu erreichen. Daneben ein paar Bänke zum Rasten. Ein sehr schöner Ort - wenn Vandalismus und Scherben nicht wären!
