Visited late on a quiet Monday afternoon and got on last tour of the day (which was the only way to see inside the castle). We were warned it would be in German but shop lent us an English guide book and guide kindly added...More
We visited as a tour from a Viking River cruise. Our guide was very informative. From the towers, the cobblestones, the walls and the tunnel entrance with the family crests it felt like a castle. Several of the doorways, stairways and halls were narrow and...More
What a splendid tour. The guide was so knowledgable and had information that you probably wouldn't get on your own. They rate this as a difficult tour with some walking on uneven surfaces, but taking the time needed made it very doable.
Marksburg castle in Braubach is THE place to see in the lovely town. Beautifully restored and never destroyed on the hill it sits upon, we are so lucky to have such a historical marvel to look at today.
The castle’s interiors are filled with a...More
All the other reviews already cover this awesome tour, so my review will focus on the stairs.
I read many reviews about the challenges of getting around Marksburg Castle, and was concerned, because I am scared of heights and wasn't sure exactly what people were...More
Worth seeing as it was not destroyed like a lot of the other castles. Not for people who have any sort of difficulty walking, climbing or breathing. Lots of uneven surfaces, inclines and stairs. Views and history were fabulous.
We were conducted there by local friends, otherwise would, regrettably, have missed this gem. Amazing authentic, which makes the castle VERY unique in the region. Audio tour adequate, but wait, if necessary, for the English tour (50 minutes), and the experience will be even better....More
The car park at Marksburg Castle leaves you a short but steep walk to the castle itself, alternatively you can take the steps for a more direct route. You enter via the riders stairway which is difficult underfoot as it is carved from the rock...More

Take the train from Frankfort to Braubach - they have their own train station. There are several direct route options daily - its a 2 hour train ride. From the train station in Braubach its a 30 minute walk up to Marksburg Castle. We did this a few months ago.

It’s not really an easy place for those who are unsteady on their feet as the inclines in the castle are uneven and there are lots of cobbles. The steps up from the car park are pretty steep and hard for the unfit although there are railings and you can take your time. Coming down is ok but the steps descend through trees and woodland so can get slippery.
