Ebersburg Castle is a ruined hill castle in Ebersberg in the parish of Ebersburg in the county of Fulda in East Hesse, Germany. It is the symbol of Ebersberg as well as the origin of its name.
A castle built around 1100 was the basis of the subsequent structure. Around 1396, the castle was extended and expanded. As it never had its own castle well, it was not very suitable as a permanent residence and was finally abandoned in the 16th century. After the Thirty Years' War there was an attempt to occupy it again by building a half-timbered house but even that failed after a few years. In the 19th century, the ruin was on the territory of the old Weyhers District Court, which was part of the Kingdom of Bavaria. During that period one of its towers was converted into a lookout tower and the castle was restored for preservation reasons. Today it is owned by the State of Hesse. It is a protected cultural monument.
