Castle Tourist Spot
A fairy tale setting come to life, Castle Marienburg rises above a landscape of rolling hills in the lush valley of the Leine River. Once a royal summer residence, the castle was originally a gift from King George V of Hanover to his wife, Queen Marie (hence the name). Today, the majestic castle is considered one of the finest examples of neo-Gothic architecture in the country. Parts of the castle are open to the public, such as the on-site museum, restaurant, and chapel. Explore the interior on a guided tour, which provides a rare chance to see what life at a royal court used to be like. You can also visit the official website for information about upcoming concerts, exhibitions, and other special events. Put Castle Marienburg on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Pattensen b Hannover vacation planner.

  • Great castle close to Hannover. If you would like to visit a castle with a bus, use regiobus linie 300 (+310) from Hannover ZOB. To make the journey nice and easy, check if the bus is coming directly ...  more »
  • Castle is beautiful, very well maintained, in the middle of the forest (there are no gardens in there, only the castle itself). There are some trails around the castle with no orientation information....  more »
  • Very beautiful but expensive. They don't let anyone just wander around and you have to go by the guided tour which is very disappointing. No photographing inside, but there is a huge lovely forest to wander about. So all in all fun if you're in the area, great for an outdoors day, not the best Castle to a History buff
  • A very cool place in Lower Saxony! Absolutely worth visiting! The only one thing I didn´t like - no fotos inside are allowed :(
  • I love this place I lived for four years about 10km away. If your in the area please pay it a visit.
  • This is one of the most beautiful castle in Germany, which is used as a banner picture of German embassy website in Vietnam.
  • Very cool old Castle. You have to take the tour if you want to see inside,. It they don't show you a lot of it for some reason.
