Wurzburg is a charming city. There are many interesting buildings, hidden gardens and cafes overlooking the Main. Across the river sits the Fortress Marienburg, high on a prominence overlooking the river. To get there, cross the old bridge and follow the signs for the footpath through a park to the fortress. It is a steep climb through very pleasant parkland,... More

You can hike up or then stay downside and take pictures. There is at least 2 bridges to the fortress and the fortress is visible to the city centre behind the corners.

First off this is a steep and all up hill walk to the top. Not meant for people who are limited. Once at the top the walk up was well worth it! The fortress itself was stunning and old. the views of Wurzburg below you are breathtaking! Great way to see Wurzburg.

After a long week on the Romantic Road we thought we were done with Castles but the fortress is a much more exciting and different prospect. Well worth the trip but do allow time to enjoy it all there was a few parts under renovation so we need to go back to see the rest.

The view of the city from the courtyard is superb. It is fun ascending the road leading to the fortress. A must visit in Würzburg.

We visited today with our grandchildren, aged from 2 to 8 and had a truly wonderful guided tour from a lady guide who gave our grandchildren the perfect introduction to life in former times. Even the smallest ones were mesmerised by her display of how coins were made in former times. A really worthwhile experience for them.

Need to see the Fortress - has so many great views and some interesting history. When we were there it was undergoing some construction so we weren't able to get up close to parts of it but it was still worth the visit. The views were spectacular!!

You can see he whole city view of Vurzburg. It takes almost 25mins in foot from the Alte mine bridge to this fortress. Or you can choose longer route, which takes 50mins, if you wanna enjoy the city tour more. No entrance fee.
