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.

in an old setting with wooden furniture, typical decoration and a professional musician playing piano, you have the classic German Konditorei. Food is good. We were a bit disappointed becausewe could not get a seat in the piano room and had to go underneath in an empty room. But fantastic view on the Lahn valley. Also our German friends were... More

Cafe Vetter is always worth a visit because they really have awesome and delicious cakes! One the most traditional and historic Cafe Houses in Marburg going back to the early part of the last century and since in the hands of three generations of Konditormeisters...or Masters of Patisserie! The cakes are of original recipes and made with real fresh cream... More

Wonderful cakes, generous slices, very fresh. We didn't eat there, but took them to go, so can't say much about the table service. Looked charming though.

Every body is going to upper/old city in Marburg. On the way back this place is the nicest I seen during my stay there. The big veranda is looking to the city. The nice ventilation/conditioning, great food and good service makes this place commendable

We always throw our diets out the window at Cafe Vetter, choosing from cream cakes, beautiful fruit tortes, all manner of chocolate, etc. They're all delectable, and we love looking down on parts of the old city, across the River Lahn and up to Wilhelmsturm and the dark hills of the Lahnberge.
