Fortress Marienberg reviews
We enjoyed our visit to the fortress. We did not pay entrance but we visited the gardens. We were lucky because they close at 18 oclock during weekends and already at 16 oclock during the week. From..... more »
The castle is nice and big you can walk a lot and the city views are very nice. I wish I could go inside but because of corona you need to schedule the tour the day before. more »
This Castle is AMAZING it's a full castle complete with royal gardens, guard turrets, royal dining hall. The views from the fortress are amazingly beautiful! Admission is inexpensive, I am from the US and really enjoyed the tour! There is great wine drinking on the bridge in the town below 😉
This is a vast castle which takes some time to explore in full. It is really several castles in one, where new layers were added as time progressed. The walls of the castle feature many passages and walkways (most are not open to the public). A part of this can be seen by visiting the Maschikuli tower and associated walkway, which I recommend!
