Some great artefacts, interesting buildings and architecture. Fantastic views over the city of Marburg. Several of the exhibits and sections were under renovation at the time, so keen to go back. Not very much in English but you can get by.

There are so many great Castles to visit in Europe. I think Edinburg has some exceptional ones, with a tour telling the history about Mary Stuart and her time. In Vienna, there are several Castles, and I think Schönnbrun is... More
