Lovely student breakfast with amazing view

The place to be after a party night to get some flair back into your life. The traditional cafe is located at the foot of the marburg castle, with a wonderfull view over the city. The interior reminds one of the late 19th century, but don't worry... The staff is used to hung-over students and... read more

Visited this restaurant on a Xmas market cruise. It was a set menu for us but very typical of the area. Food was fab. Would go again.

The cakes were amazing and the view looks over the city of marburg. The worst part of the place was the seating which was really cramped with a lot of furniture and decor in the way. Otherwise was quite a good place. Service was great as well and I would recommend this place.

I visited this well-known café with a group of friends on a Saturday morning. We sat down at 12:05 and our food was served at 13:15! We were totally ignored for at least 30 minutes after ordering and then when we asked about our order we were informed that it had been forgotten and would take ten minutes to be... More

Lovely place overlooking the city. We always stop here to have a pice of cake! It is a very traditional German bakery and they have several types of cake, freshly baked every day. My favorite is the raspberry cake.

A couple blocks away from the old town's center, this cafe has a charming dining area with several different sitting areas. On a Saturday afternoon in January, the place was packed and there was live piano music. As with most German coffee shops, the cake was outstanding. The coffee, on the other hand, wasn't the best ever...but it was compensated... More

Cafe Vetter is a wonderful experience. My wife and I visited twice while in Marburg. The view is unbeatable, overlooking half the city. The food is also very good. I had salmon on potato pancakes, and they were wonderful. The student breakfast, which my wife had, is enough to satisfy large appetites on a budget. We will come back next... More

Great place to have a refreshment. On a nice day, the terrace has fantastic view and fresh air. If it is raining, the view from the inside is still nice. The cakes are excellent (as good as Klingelhofer), but the service is not as personal.
