We travelled to the castle by train, then walking. Train to Braubach, then it took us about 30 minutes to walk from station to top of the mountain. Is a strenous walk, but very scenic through a forest trail. Look for small sign marking footpath...More

A superb castle standing high above the banks of the Rhine. In order to reach the castle from the car park there are two flights of steep steps and then lots of uneven cobbles around the castle so it would not be suitable for anyone...More

Make sure you are wearing sturdy, comfortable shoes for this venture into history. The Rhine Valley sports many castles (I previously visited Schloss Stolzenfels, within view on the other side of the river), and nearly all are worth a visit. A friend took us here...More

The castle is reminiscent of the history of Germany. While the interior is furnished, sometimes it is not in period. Well worth the visit. It does involve some steps.

This castle was one of our favorites. We had a great tour guide, which probably made all the difference. Our group was small, & he answered our questions (very different from Hohenschwangau & Neuschwanstein). It’s a small, family castle. It wasn’t big or opulent but...More

This castle was on the Rhine to have never been destroyed. Built in the 13th century the castle does give the modern day visitor an excellent view of what living in a castle was like: difficult! It is difficult to navigate the uneven walkways and...More

When Marksburg Castle first appears way up above the Rhine River, it’s obvious why it was never captured. The location is about as strategically perfect as it gets. Today, accessing the castle for a tour requires some uphill walking and negotiating some uneven cobblestone walkways....More

Thank you everyone for taking time to respond! The staff from Marksburg Castle also responded by email to say that the only transportation to the castle is by taxi--no bus or tram.
