This is a very nice castle and it showes it's beauty by being build in the center of the historic town of Marburg and it is build high on a hill surrounded by the old town. The castle dates back to the 12 th century and many original artifacts are displayed besides the fantastic architecture. Another great thing they show is how the "old guard" was watching out for intruders 400 years ago and to our amaze it seems like a mini google version. They have a small wooden hut within the castle grounds and before the walls in which the show a mechanicle observery which lets you watch the activities around the castle with a 360 degree view. This is done by using one of the first lenses ever produced, amirrow and a round table which can be moved up and down in order to get focuse in the live picture. One must go there to see in order to believe. Enjoy!
