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.
