Marksburg is the only medieval castle of the Middle Rhine that has never been destroyed. As a fortress, it protected medieval people rather than serving as a residence for royal families. Built around 1117 and entering the written record in 1231, it has a storied history. In the Napoleonic period, prisoners were kept here. It was damaged by American artillery in World War II.

Guided tour was great and gave a lot of information about the history of the castle and the surrounding area. Not all the information given was historically correct though (but I guess that's what you get if you're a history lover). It was nevertheless a wonderful castle.
Historic Castle well maintained. Informative tours walk you through history! Great views of the Rhine!
