If you are in good shape do not fear. My daughter counted over 300 steps to the top.Over there you do have a magnificent view.There is also a bar at the very top where you can have an Aperol admiring the city.

Walking to this land mark is the best advice. Follow the signs from the bridge and take your time walking up the many steps .. the final view is worth the effort. We are 64 and only reasonably fit and we enjoyed it.

Very impressive Fortress (or Palace) that played a remarkable role in history. Only guided tours are available (no self guide ... ) and English tours are pretty limited. You will only see par of the palace. After that the view is really fantasic. A bit overpriced, I think.

Fortress Marienburg has a rich history. Recently he suffered at the end of WW2. Today's appearance is the last adjustment after that war. My photos show a nice overall look of the city.
