I could not find anything about a Von Waltsleben castle in Germany. Are you sure about the spelling? I did find some mention of a Burg Walsleben. This castle lay east of the town of Osterburg in the Landkreis Stendal in the Sachsen-Anhalt province.
It seems it was destroyed in 929 by a Slavonean army of "Redarier" (don't know what that means). All its inhabitants were slaughtered. This was a Slavonean reaction to some other military action by the Saxons. One source says it was rebuilt shortly after but it seems that nothing remains today.

"But round about the castle there began to grow a hedge of thorns, which every year became higher...."
