It's a fantastic place to enjoy a gorgeous view of the city of Marburg and it's surroundings. The castle is high above the city and it's a decent walk getting there.

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.

There are so many great Castles to visit in Europe. I think Edinburg has some exceptional ones, with a tour telling the history about Mary Stuart and her time. In Vienna, there are several Castles, and I think Schönnbrun is... More
