Marksburg Castle

Marksburg Castle is the only castle in the Rhine Valley to have never been destroyed. It watches over the town as it has since the 13th century. Because this magnificent structure was built with strong fortifications, it was never besieged by enemies.

 Upon arrival on its lofty grounds, we enjoyed spectacular views of Braubach, the Rhine and the surrounding countryside from its 550-foot perch. We toured the citadel, and saw the impressive kitchens in the Gothic Hall building Today, Marksburg Castle is home to the German Castles Association, which works to preserve medieval fortifications such as Marksburg all over Germany
