It's a fantastic place to enjoy a gorgeous view of the city of Marburg and it's surroundings. The castle is high above the city and it's a decent walk getting there.

It takes a while to walk up to the castle but "wow" when you get there. The tour is very good, Martin Luther lived here for a while. The view is spectacular.

This is definitely a must see! You have a nice view over Marburg and it is very nice to have a walk in and around the castle.

Steep walk with lots of steps and cobblestones but well worth the effort. Stunning panoramic views of the city and countryside.

Build in the 11th century, Marburger Schloss (Marburg castle) had many uses over the years: fortified castle, garrison, residence, prison, archive and lately as...More

Some great artefacts, interesting buildings and architecture. Fantastic views over the city of Marburg. Several of the exhibits and sections were under renovation at the time, so keen to go back. Not very much in English but you can get by.

There are so many great Castles to visit in Europe. I think Edinburg has some exceptional ones, with a tour telling the history about Mary Stuart and her time. In Vienna, there are several Castles, and I think Schönnbrun is... More
