This old castle is spectacular! Be ready for walking, uneven cobblestones, and lots of history! Really gives you an idea of life in the Middle Ages. I could have stayed there all day long. This place survived the wars and is still going strong. Remarkable!

We enjoyed this castle very much. Unfortunately, we missed the English version of the tour so we borrowed the english book version. We didn't find it very beneficial and difficult to follow the rooms. Also, I knew enough German to know that the guide was...More

Ancient castle high above the Rhine with lots of old artifacts, including armor. Moderate walk on what remined me of a creek bottom (irregular stones) through the inclined entry tunnel. Many steps throughout the castle. We toured the dinning room, master bedroom, blacksmith shop, armory,...More

Marksburg Castle provided insight into the workings of a castle. The tour included a look at the living quarters, a room devoted to armor from the Roman period as well as a brutal torture chamber. The walk up to the castle from the bus was...More

Nice tour of the castle. The castle, itself, is not super impressive, however, the views are fantastic. Has to be done with a tour (duration: 50 minutes.). The tour is in Germany, however, if you pay 5 € for a book in English, you'll get...More

We were on a Viking cruise & loved the authentic condition of the castle, complete with untouched cobble stone roads into the castle they horses used to ride on.

Too often when you tour a building, you feel like you're missing the good stuff. Here, they take you almost everywhere (not easy if you have mobility issues). But it's fascinating to see how they lived back then and the views from the castle give...More

My wife and I were able to visit the Marksburg Castle as part of Viking River Cruise's Rhine Getaway Cruise. The walk up to the castle is on the steep side and the lower reaches of the castle have irregularly shaped cobblestones so you'll want...More

The castle has been well preserved and maintained. Guided tours through some of the areas with interesting stories of times gone by. The walk up was a little steep but worth it.

My husband & I visited a few days ago in early October while in the area. We took the train from Koblenz to Braubach (make sure you have euros to buy a ticket on the way back-our cards would not work on the train terminal)....More

Take Highway 3 south out of Cologne. Then 48 to 42. Will take about an hour and a half. You might want to check their website for their opening times.

It’s not really an easy place for those who are unsteady on their feet as the inclines in the castle are uneven and there are lots of cobbles. The steps up from the car park are pretty steep and hard for the unfit although... More
