Marburger Landgrafenschloss Museum, Marburg

(4.1/5 based on 180+ 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.

  • This weekend, I visited Marburg. I have not previously planned to visit the Museum, was only in the proximity to the Marburg Castle. The Museum is itself interesting by itself, comprises very nice exhibits, particularly impressed me the armor and weapons. The staff (especially Igor Frimer) is very friendly and is very in the Museum was. That's why if you want to spend a nice time in Marburg, I highly recommend the Museum of art and cultural history.

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