4/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web
Perched high above the town of Marburg, Marburger Landgrafenschloss Museum is a 13th-century fortress housing a history museum. The fortress is visible from all over the city and towers as an emblem over the narrow streets. These same streets provide great opportunities for photos of the castle's towers and walls. Take a short trek up a hill to the entrance of the museum and the fortress grounds. In addition to the artifacts on display in the museum, you'll see murals painted in the 13th century. In the chapel, polished tiles make the sacred place glisten. The Prince Hall inside the castle is the largest Gothic hall in Germany that has exclusively been used for parties since the day it was completed. The hall's tradition continues with constant cultural events and festivities taking place between its towering walls.

  • What a great sight, see up from the bottom to the Landgrave Castle! Who doesn't shy away from the many stairs to the forecourt (quite beautifully tiring), then will be rewarded with a magnificent view over the rooftops of Marburg. We were lucky with the weather on an October day and a warm sun seemed about the scenario. One tired saw himself, can enter the courtyard and visit the Museum of cultural history. The individual rooms and areas are nested arranged and partially about spiral staircases to reach something. To enter all spaces, would lead too far. The section in which the Castle has served as a prison impressed me. The hygienic conditions must have been unfit for human habitation. An area shows the special exhibition on blind: "look: points". Was very fascinated by this interesting exhibition. What about there, to make life easier for the people who can not see. Marburg is the 'capital' of the blind, there's the "Blista", the blind datore. On a winding cobblestone Street again to reach the marketplace, where we strengthened us in the "café in the market". The castle can be reached with the bus line 10 or with the historic castle bus 191.

  • Castle that can Castle Marburg with car and be reached on foot. For those arriving by car you should note that not very many parking on the grounds of the Castle are. Ensure that they put on sturdy shoes because walking is to the part a steep is it upward. The spacious outdoor area enchants its guests with a breathtaking view and invites you to linger in the surrounding gardens. Coming in the walking distance from the old town upwards, a wild boar Fountain (water fountain) has been inserted with in the castle wall. Museum: High is above the beautiful old town of Marburg as Landgrave Castle is a Museum in the heart of the Castle, the Museum takes up different additional with topics. The beautiful old furniture was interesting, but not scare into almost every room sits an employee. The Museum inside is also suitable for people with wheelchair because it has an elevator, the only obstacle is the entrance he reachable only by stairs (as far as I could see it). You should bring however time is as much realistically is, also the additional topics are wonderfully described in detail with different stations, try it out during my stay the additional topic "lost sight - how it was!"
