Using Trip advisor ratings as a guide, part of our group decided to eat outside for lunch as the location is excellent. After we had ordered and received our drinks, it started to rain. They moved us inside with a table for six near the bar. The inside is small and rather tight but satisfactory. The food was excellent--everyone in... More

We ate here on night. Shared a table with a German couple that spoke a little English, we spoke a little German, got along fine. The heringstopf was very good. Location right on the square.

Traditional German cuisine. This place is really great! It is run by a local family, giving a personal touch to the service and the food. The service is great, and they speak English. The food is really delicious! I have been there many times and keep coming back whenever I am around! I specially like the pork medallions and the... More

I got what you'd expect from your corner German Kniepe - a tasty Schnitzel with a tasty Pfefferling sauce and spaetzle. It was good, but nothing special at all. The price wasn't bad, but you can get better for less at other places in Marburg. The location is top-notch, though.

We had reserved a table indoors - but at the end of a hot touring day we realized that there was a large garden with an outdoor restaurant as well. Having our cocktails outdoors, the waiter advised us that we could only order from the full restaurant menu until 18:30. This being ok, I went inside to advise the manager... More

It takes a an effort to walk up to the castle, but the food and view are worth the effort. Both indoor and outdoor dining is available, but the menue outside is more limited.

Stopped in twice for a couple of meals. Restaurant is at a nice location just at the town square. It's quite narrow inside and has a nice historic feel / decor which adds to the atmosphere. Restaurant was busy and a couple of items weren't available from the menu on the first day, but were back on the menu the... More

I had a great meat at the Ratsschanke. They have traditional German food and prepare it well. The dining area has an old rustic feel which adds to the experience. Staff was friendly and attentive.

Always a favorite while in Marburg. Food is so delicious with ample servings. My favorite spatzle... Everything here is good. The atmosphere and service is excellent and very good beers. It is located on the town square. Lunch or dinner are great times to visit.
