We had some free time on our Viking Cruise so we walked up to the fortress. It was fairly busy even in November and there were several school groups. Our visit was to the exterior and courtyard There are signs around in English and German...More
The fortess is part of the great wall of Nurmberg. It is one of the best reserved wall in Germany. It is worth visiting it and search for the past glory of the city. It offers a vantage point of the city
Going to the fortress is an easy walk from the city centre. There is a beautiful bridge with many tourists taking photos of the bridge with statues. You will see the beautiful vineyards of Wurtzburg in the background and see the unique beautiful views of...More
Loved the views on the way up and down the hill to Marienberg Fortress. The main castle is closed in winter, but the museum was interesting despite few English translations. The views were spectacular. Walked up via the streets and the main entrance and down...More

When we visited the fortress we walked through the side streets. Yes, there are steps and it is a little challenging but if you take your time it is certainly worth the visit. Reasonably priced as well for entry. We visited in December and the fortress was closed but the museum was open. Think from memory it is closed from Oct - Mar but you need to confirm this. Not sure how your cruise will take you there but it didn't take that long to walk at an easy pace..
