    More pictures of the Schloss are at http://www.burgring.de/Die_Burg/Bildergalerie/bildergalerie.html

    It all begin in 1088. The name of the mountain was named the "Edelmann Gerhard“ and the Schloss was started. The Schloss was built for Gerhard von Grumbach.

    Thanks to King_Golo for sharing this information about Elgersburg:
    Hi there, a suitable translation would be: "Since 1228, a monk stone stood here as a border stone of Mönchheide" Mönch means monk, but I have no idea if a Mönchstein is only a stone made by monks or some fixed term.

    Alter Rittersaal translates into "old riders room". In the middle ages, this room was used for changing into riding gear.

    The parking next to the entrance. If you are renting a car, I recommend you park only where these signs are visible.

    Elgersburg is a kleine Dorfchen (small village) so it is easy to navigate around. As you drive up the hil (just look for the one with the Schloss on it)l you will start seeing signs for parking "nur fur Schlossbesucher" (Only for Schloss visitors). This parking pace was the first one we came to so I stopped here and we walked the final 100 metres to the Schloss gate. Unknown to me, there was also parking available at the Schloss entrance!

    I suggest you park where these signs are visible because to park along the street you need a special "pass" that you display in your front window on the drivers. If you look at my Marktbreit pictures (when I post) you find out what happens when you park on the street with no parking pass!

    If you rent a vehicle to drive around Germany, always look at the parking signs! At the Schloss, park only where you see this sign.

    Favorite thing: Keep your eyes open and look everywhere for history. This stelle (small obelisk essentially) was standing off to the right of the Schloss entrance. The sign reads "Ein Mönchstein stand seit dem Jahre 1228 als Grenzmal auf der Mönchheide" which roughly translates into "A Mönchstein (an Austrian nobleman?) defeated/governed over the pagans in this land since 1228".

    Any German who can provide more precise translation, please contact me!

    Fondest memory: Congenial people live in this village.
