First, be sure you know how to get here. I was directed by a local to go up the street on the left side of the fortress to get there. Yeah. If you wanted to walk 5 miles, maybe. There is a path on the right side of the Fortress at the bottom. Cross the beautiful bridge across the river, veer right and then left and you will find the way. There are city maps of how to get there. Unfortunately, I didn't have one when I first attempted. The garden in the front of the fortress is accessed by a gate near the really tall tower in the center of the castle. Walk along the side of the fortress and you are there. This has some of the most outstanding picture opportunities in Wurzburg. I was there in the afternoon, but being there near dusk(not sure of the hours they are open), would give some pictures to be framed when you got home. The garden is perfectly manicured. There is a restaurant just before you come into the fortress, great view of Wurzeburg and you will need a coke or a beer after walking up the hill to get here. This castle complex is a must see in Wurzburg, along with the Residenz.

Elevated position with great views of Wurzburg along the Main River. The garden is nice, but a bit small. Great spot for pictures or just to soak up the view. After walking around Marienberg Fortress you should be sure not to miss this nice garden.

I was lucky to visit on a cool day without many tourists so it was like wandering through my own elaborate garden. The outlooks are impressive

We did the escorted tour of Marienberg and the gardens. The tour was very informative and it is worth it if only for the views from the gardens over the city alone!

My 2nd visit here, mostly for the museum & Riemenschneider research, so didn't go into the fortress proper. But did a lot of wandering around, including the towers where prisoners were kept. Museum & information staff quite helpful.
