|Place:||Gablingen - "Schlossberg"|
The high medieval castle stable Schlossberg is located about two kilometers west of Gablingen in the Augsburg district in Swabia . The former ministerial headquarters has almost completely disappeared apart from minor traces of the terrain.
The small hilltop castle was probably the seat of a servant of the Marschalken von Biberbach. In the high Middle Ages, such small hilltop castles (moths) were residences and status symbols of the numerous servants and sub-vassals of important lords or ministerials . A few more examples have been preserved in the vicinity. As with many early and high medieval site monuments, there are no documents or other records of the history of the Burgplatz.
The hilltop in "Gablinger Hart" is now completely forested. The Motten seems to have consisted of a "tower hill" and the usual outer bailey. The traces of the terrain can only be made out indistinctly, the elongated foreground slopes to the east.
