  • The views from the top are spectacular. It's a nice walk up to the top (if you don't get lost). A lot of history surrounding the fortress so take the time to read about it before you go. 
  • Imposing fortress, well equipped and with good access, Marienburg is a unique viewpoint about Wurzburg ... the restoration of this set built corroborate the importance of valorization of heritage.
