The Liebenberg castle wall is the stable of a Slavic castle wall in the north of the state of Brandenburg . It is located in the Liebenberg district of the community of Löwenberger Land on a peninsula in the Großer Lankesee .

Theodor Fontane reported:

Little is known about the prehistory of the village and castle Liebenberg, which gave the rulership its name. In all probability it was, in Wendish times, a point of defense chosen by the Ukranians, which, when the German cause had triumphed, served them as bases again. A few place names speak for this. Especially one in the middle of a narrow headland that extends into a forest lake, the "great Lanke", rises the "castle hill", surrounded on three sides by water, the fourth side of which, like an approaching pass, is easy to defend was. The defenders of the same were in the end Germans, as the name "Burgberg" suggests, but Germans who had very probably assumed a mere inheritance here. Excavations would easily give certainty about it. "
