Marksburg Castle

The only hilltop castle on the Middle Rhine that has never been destroyed

Fancy a trip back to the Middle Ages? Then a visit to Marksburg Castle - the only hilltop castle on the Middle Rhine that has never been destroyed - is just the thing!

With its buildings dating from the 13th to 15th centuries, Marksburg Castle has been completely preserved as a medieval fortification. The castle not only offers a unique glimpse into the past, but also allows you to explore authentic interiors that bring the Middle Ages to life. From the cozy castle kitchen to the magnificent knights' hall and the atmospheric chapel - every corner of the castle tells its own story.

For a complete insight into the historic fortifications, you should definitely join a guided tour of the castle. Experienced guides will lead you through the castle kitchen, armory and wine cellar, among other things, giving you exciting insights into medieval castle life. You can not only admire the impressive architecture, but also learn details about the everyday life of the people who once inhabited this imposing fortress.

Marksburg Castle sits majestically on a rocky cone, 90 meters above picturesque Braubach and offers not only an impressive backdrop, but also a fantastic view of the Rhine. Its convenient location on the Rheinsteig makes the castle an ideal starting point for a combined visit and hike. Experience the unique combination of knights' tales, castle romance and nature and let Marksburg Castle whisk you away to a bygone era.
