“Didn't go inside....just admired the views for free.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

Walking from the pedestrian zone up the cobblestone street or steps may take the wind out of you, but I think it was worth the climb.

Didn't go inside the castle, based on previous reviews. Just stayed in the courtyard area to admire the near 360 degree view of the Marburg area.

“Take the bus”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

Although there some great views as you ascend the steep cobbled street up to the castle my advice is take the #10 Schloss bus and save your energy for exploring the grounds and the Grimm or Castle park. Right before you reach the top there is a restaurant with decent food and a pleasant view. Of course i was there on a Monday and the museum was closed.

“All tourists go to here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

Definitely it is a place to see in Marburg. Not forget to be before 2PM there. Nice to walk to there quietly and first make a circle counter clock wise below the castle - the nice wooden area with beautiful private houses is a gem in the modern city.
The collection of the museum is not that big, and no super-pooper objects there, but the furniture and many medieval items are nicely presented in the castle. For me there was some disappointment to see the "excessive" restoration. Here and there you fell that you are not in the medieval building, but in the modern one, where stones are cut by computer-driven cutters.

“Great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

Good exercise to climb the steps to the castle. Beautiful views of Marburg and surrounding area. I had been there several times before taking the tour and enjoyed the history and artifacts shown. Interesting painting of Martin Luther.
