This is a wonderful authentic castle. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is the only castle never to have been conquered. Easy to see why. Very high up with lots of shallow steps where the horses used to enter. The rooms are authentic and they...More

Arriving at the castle in late November, we expected limited hours or access but were pleasantly surprised that we could still do a tour. The cashier had told us the tour was in German but to our delight our tour guide spoke perfect English and...More

No pretty changes here. The real thing with difficult steps, narrow stairs and showing you how the owners really lived. An excellent tour and worth the effort to get there,

The Marksburg is a castle above the town of Braubach in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. The fortress was used for protection rather than as a residence for royal families. Besides being an historic and interesting place to visit, it also houses the main office of the German...More

It was quite a walk up the hill to get to the castle. Inside there is eroded rock requiring some mild rock scrambling skills. Coupled with lots of stairs makes this site rather strenuous to explore, but boy is it worth it. The castle goes...More

Visiting the Marksburg Castle was one of the included excursions on our recent Viking River Cruise. This excursion takes a little bit of exertion climbing from the parking lot to the entrance of the Castle. You can climb the stair steps or walk up a...More

Step back in time when you pay a visit to this castle. Another castle stop on my river cruise and well worth it. The climb to the top is not as some people say. There are many steps, but not all at once. Some steps...More

There are some places that you have to watch your step. At the beginning there are some stone steps that are original to the castle. As long as you are watching your step you will be okay. Most of the time it is an easy... More
