Marburger Landgrafenschloss Museum, Marburg

4.2
#9 of 89 in Museums in Hesse
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.

    I was the 2nd time in Marburg and was again enthusiastic. This time it went up up - to the Castle. A beautiful building from the past. Here you can visit a museum. The views are great, too.

    The visit is based on the history of the Catholic Reformation, which began in this region. I found this very interesting and educational visit. But it is necessary to take a translator with his smartphone. This is the default for this visit is mostly in German. On the other hand we have not seen other French and I don't think this is a place to foreign tourists. A note for people at the reception that we have offered to lend us an English guide booklet and the friendliness of the people on each floor who take pleasure to answer your questions.
