Fortress Marienberg Reviews
The Fortress is amazing. 18th & 19th century “modern” walls surrounding a much older castle and Bishop’s complex (now a giant museum). Don’t miss. Great view, a beer garden of course. Beautiful... more »
One of the most beautiful fortresses we have ever seen. We have seen it from the outside. You can arrive with a nice uphill walk through its park. From above you can enjoy a beautiful panorama. more »
This Castle is AMAZING it's a full castle complete with royal gardens, guard turrets, royal dining hall. The views from the fortress are amazingly beautiful! Admission is inexpensive, I am from the US and really enjoyed the tour! There is great wine drinking on the bridge in the town below 😉
This is a vast castle which takes some time to explore in full. It is really several castles in one, where new layers were added as time progressed. The walls of the castle feature many passages and walkways (most are not open to the public). A part of this can be seen by visiting the Maschikuli tower and associated walkway, which I recommend!
