Marksburg Castle is the only medieval castle of the Middle Rhine that has never been destroyed. As a fortress, it protected medieval people rather than serving as a residence for royal families. Built around 1117 and entering the written record in 1231, it has a storied history. In the Napoleonic period, prisoners were kept here. It was damaged by American artillery in World War II.

  • Worth seeing, nice leadership, magnificent views of the Rhine, the dog was with it, the only never ruined castle of in Germany. Good parking. Only the self-service gastronomy would be expanded. The separate picnic terrace is good.

  • Great example of a Medieval castle. Fairly step to walk to and four gates to pass through. Knowledgeable staff that bring the castle to life with well preserved culture and tools displayed. Nice tapestries and furniture with incredible views overlooking the Rhine. Displays of armor, cannon, torture devices, and a very old gravity privy! Well worth the entrance.
  • Guide spoke excellent English. Very knowledgeable. Well preserved!
  • The interior is fully furnished, more or less. Our tour guide spoke English very well. The exterior of the castle has a pleasant appearance, and the cafe and gift shop are very good.
  • Beautiful indeed . In fact is one of the most beautiful places that I ever see.
  • This place is situated in very nice area but I was expecting something more
