Marksburg Castle


Imposing hilltop castle on the Middle Rhine

Anyone planning a trip to the Middle Rhine should definitely pay a visit to Marksburg Castle. As the only hilltop castle that has never been destroyed, the imposing fortress from the 13th to 15th centuries very impressively shows its medieval history. In addition to the buildings, kennels and bastions on a rock cone 90 meters above the romantic town of Braubach, very interesting interiors such as the castle kitchen, knights’ hall, bower, chapel, armory, wine cellar, battlements and tower rooms can be visited. In short, a real journey into the Middle Ages. Since 1900, Marksburg Castle has been owned by the German Castle Association – an association of people interested in and committed to the preservation of castles and palaces.
