My husband & I visited a few days ago in early October while in the area. We took the train from Koblenz to Braubach (make sure you have euros to buy a ticket on the way back-our cards would not work on the train terminal)....More

Visiting this castle is an extraordinary experience - one of the highlights of our trip down the Rhine. Be prepared for a steep walk before reaching the castle and some difficult terrain inside but with a good guide the visit is very worthwhile.

My alltime favorite castle along the Rhine river. The Marksburg is in remarkable shape and a must see when you are in the area. Great guided tours, also available in English. Great place. Full stop. 😊

Marksburg Castle is worth the visit. It is beautiful from the Rhine River and provides spectacular views from the outer walls. The metal working and weapons rooms were very interesting. It is a small castle, so rooms are under-sized when compared to many other castles...More

We were looking forward to seeing this castle and it did not disappoint! We first saw it as we approached on the Rhine, and I understand how imposing it must have looked to the wanna-be mauraders! The tour was fascinating....from the medieval kitchen to the...More
