Take your time enjoying the Fortress...should take no more than a few hours for the walk and to see the sights. Museum and other indoor attractions are Closed... More

The fortress is one of the biggest in Germany and worth the visit! Nice to see from the city but even nicer from above. You can see the whole city. Best time to visit during summer!!

For a full review on Wurzburg, please visit: http://honeymooneverydayblog.com/2014/07/wurzburg-germany/ The fortress Marienburg has a commanding and beautiful view of Wurzburg from atop the hill.

When you are still healthy, walk there over the "Alte Mainbrücke" by foot, then climb a little and in about 30 minutes you should reach the Festung and then you are rewarded by a magnificent view over the whole city!
