As part of our river cruise, we had a guided tour of the castle followed by a dinner with medieval-style entertainment - it was a fabulous evening. The castle is beautifully restored so you get a very good idea of what life would have been...More

Health and safety is lacking at this castle. Being used to the wonderful English Heritage run castles, this castle would not be allowed to have tourists let loose in the U.K. There are extreme problems with the walking surface once reaching the castle. The rough,...More

The castles were good and fun to look at, many were just empty and gloomy but still fun to view. After a few it was good to do other things and try new places..

A great castle and enjoyed our 4 person tour. I only gave it 4 stars since Cochem and Eltz castles was more enjoyable. Both the tour and castles.

this is an old edifice and the pavements within it show it. There are no smooth or even walking paths, and every one is sloped. If you can get by those items, the castle itself is very interesting historically and architecturally. However, the first problem...More

Marksburg Castle was part of our Viking River cruise itinerary. My husband went alone as the climb was too strenuous for me (bad knee). From the point of the bus drop off there was a fairly steep incline to the castle. The castle itself is...More
