We first saw Marksburg Castle in 2009 during our first ever river boat trip which was on the Rhine. Sitting high on the hill Marksburg is very imposing from the river and I captured some very nice photos. So, this year, redoing the Rhine trip...More

The only castle on the Rhein never taken or destroyed in combat until damaged by US bombardment in 1945. It is in a typically dominating hilltop position for a Rhein castle above Braubach. It is a striking and beautiful site with amazing views. The interiors...More

This is the only middle Rhine castle that was never destroyed. It really is fascinating, and dripping with history. It is possible to get a pretty decent glimpse into life in a medieval German castle. The armory, smithy, stables, kitchen, chapel, chaplain's quarters, wine cellar,...More

We were here with a large group, the meal and service were very good. The castle tour was excellent with a very knowledgeable guide, the steps and cobbles are a bit daunting however. The views are magnificent worth the rather hair raising trip up. The...More

Optional tour as part of our River Cruise. Magnificent ancient castle, with a comprehensive guided tour. Still has working garden and great views outside.

As one enters the town of Braubach it is very easy to spot Marksburg perched high on the hill above the Rhine, looking rather like a real ‘fairytale’ castle. Although there are signposts that take you up the winding roads of the hillside to the...More
