Very enjoyable walk across the oldest bridge in Europe to the Fortress. Take your time as the walk from the city could prove moderately strenuous for some but worth the expended calories. 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.

The journey to the mighty fortress required a hike up the hill, and upon crossing the bridge two diverging paths were suggested to me by a signpost.
