“Lovely views, excellent museum, historic site”

Marburger Landgrafenschloss Museum
Ranked #2 of 23 things to do in Marburg
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 October 2017

The Marburg Castle sits high above the beautiful, historic hilltop city with its half-timbered houses, cosy streets and thousands of steps. It is a reasonably short but steep walk from the town square but there is also a regular bus service, and if you don't mind a few narrow, bumpy and steep roads, you can even drive there! The Museum covers the long history of the castle in a well-designed and not overwhelming presentation (not really for people with walking difficulties). There is a restaurant/cafe nearby but not inside the castle.

If you are interested in the history and also like medieval castles you might want to pay a visit to this castle. There is a very nice view over Marburg, and furthermore you can find nice exhibitiona of different medieval weapons, clothes, religious objects. As well, the chapel within is very nice, since being the original.

A good place to enjoy hiking. The place carries so much information of the history. The city-view from the top is really amazing....

I studied in Marburg 1972-1973 and lived right by the castle. I visited it again in 2000 and again in 2017. It has an excellent and diverse museum inside. In fact, there is so much in the museum that it is very difficult to see it all in one visit.

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.
