(190+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum
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.

  • It takes a while to walk up to the castle but "wow" when you get there. The tour is very good, Martin Luther lived here for a while. The view is spectacular.  more »
  • This is definitely a must see! You have a nice view over Marburg and it is very nice to have a walk in and around the castle.  more »
  • Steep walk with lots of steps and cobblestones but well worth the effort. Stunning panoramic views of the city and countryside.  more »
