Marburger Landgrafenschloss Museum, Marburg

(4.1/5 based on 170+ 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.

  • The castle is beautiful and the view from up there too. On Mondays the Museum is closed, so pay attention to that fact if you want to visit. But it's worth the climb anyway. You can get walking or taking a bus, both ways super recommended.

  • You can reach the lock by a steep stair-climb, but it's worth it. The view is stunning, the lock is the trouble (the museum was close when we were there) and the garden is a resting spot to linger and enjoy.

  • Very much recommended. very interesting. You should go for a walk to the Castle and look at the beautiful building inside and out alone.
