I was recommended this hotel by a work colleague in Marburg. Just off the main square in the old part of the city, it offers traditional German dishes and beers at reasonable prices. The waitresses that served me both spoke good English and I was relieved that they had an English menu, as only German was available on the website.... More

The service and food were excellent. Our waitress spoke very good English and brought us a menu in English (Bonus). The Food was well prepared and tasty. We had the pork over homemade noodles and a salad. Loved the atmosphere since we were seated on the second floor. Will be back the next time we visit Marburg-

We drove from FRA to Marburg to meet a colleague. We walked up to the Schloss and the stopped at Zur Sonne to enjoy its strategic location, wonderful beer, wine and food. It was a very pleasant evening.

Located right on Market Square in front of the Saint George fountain. Regarded as an old-time favorite even by locals. Try Oma's ( grandma's) recipe of rolled beef and home-style vegetable soup with pancake strips. Dinner for 2 with wine was only about 50 euro.

The community was having a festival today and the place was packed with people. It was cool, not raining, and sunny as we set outside enjoying visiting with family. The menu offered local speciality foods as well as more general German dishes. The food, service, atmosphere, were very good. We enjoyed and would repeat the experience.m

The Zur Sonne restaurant rates among the best in Marburg. In good weather the outside terrace offers great views of the old town, the menu presents both local specialities and dishes from other German regions. The staff is friendly. Best come early and book a table at an agreed hour. Highly recommended.

They were out of 3 of the 4 main courses that are the specialities of the house when we went there. Obviously manyt people liked these specialities but to not be in stock of most of their specialities was a flaw in my opinion.

Forty-four years ago this gem earned a top rating from us, for its beautiful location, historic ambiance and delicious traditional mid-German food. Today it's still very good, although a flirtation with modern cuisine about 15 years ago was a bad fit and drove us away for the next few years. I remember the wonderful schnitzels of the 1970s, and enjoyed... More

This traditional restaurant on the square is the choice of many people from the University and also family gatherings as there are upstairs rooms for private parties. Whenever I had guests or small meetings this was the place of choice. A very friendly staff, efficient service and excellent cooking! Good beer. I would go for the game or lamb when... More
