Worth the steep walk from the city
Feb 2020 • Couples
Like most Schloss locations this one has a commanding view of the city below. The museum is interesting, but has no English brochure and only a few English translations on any displays. In spite of this it is worth having a look through.

Marburg castle
Feb 2020 • Family
A lot of exhibition cases were empty and a whole section was closed due to renovation but the visit was worth it. A must see. Easy to reach on foot or by bus.

Beautiful View of Surroundings
Aug 2019 • Family
Been up to the castle twice and I am very impressed with its location and its impressive presence. You can get here by car, bus, or tourist “train”. Or, you could walk up the steep incline.

The view of the surrounding area is tremendous from up here.

On the second visit, we entered the museum. It was very disappointing since the displays did not seem to be laid out in a way to tell a story. There are plenty of interesting artifacts, but the supporting story is missing. Also, would have liked more signage in English in addition to the German.

Fairytale castle
May 2019 • Friends
The castle was very nice and so is the museum. Many interesting things to see about the castle, the german culture and royalty. There were some rooms that we couldn't see because they were under construction, other than that everything was magical.

More the castle than the museum
May 2019 • Solo
This is only one interesting museum that attracted me. But, what I found inside was a bit disappointing. I guess that small town like Marburg could't make it better, but still a lot of rooms are empty or very modest equipped. Still, it worth to visit for 5€ entrance fee.

Allow plenty of time as there is a lot to see
Jan 2019 • Friends
My daughter and I took the bus up to the Schloss yesterday. The cost was EUR2.20 one way. Free for uni student daughter. The bus drivers are immensely capable and practiced at negotiating the narrow streets and tight turns.

The Schloss houses a very well organised museum within its walls. Cost for me EUR5. Free for daughter. You must place bags in a locker and can also leave your coat if you wish. Coin operated locker refunds your coin on retrieval of bags.

Displays include several models of the Schloss through the ages from the 10th century onwards. These are on the ground floor with the display of Marburg Pottery and other works.

You can choose to use a life or walk the stairs like we did to access the small chapel and the three floors of museum.

The first floor is religious art from about the 12th century onwards. Much is from Elisabethkirche which was renovated and rearranged many times over the centuries. I spent a lot of time on this floor. The descriptor cards included both German and English.

The second floor holds items further along in time. Few of the descriptions included English although dates are easy enough to read. This display included shields and armour worn by the order of knights who took over St. Elizabeth’s work after she died, as well as swords and firearms and other weapons. There is an enormous tapestry on display on this floor, as well.

The third floor holds furniture, clothing, everyday objects and beautiful works of art up to the early 30th century. Again, little or no English. I didn’t have the opportunity to examine this floor as much as I would have liked as we needed to catch the bus back down the hill.

We caught the bus up at 1.15pm and returned on the 3.45pm bus (the museum closes at 4pm in the colder months). I would recommend allowing yourself an additional hour.

Well worth a visit, especially if you look in at Elisabethkirche before or after. (I visited Elisabethkirche the day before so the museum displays meant more to me because of it.)

Worth the steep climb
Dec 2018 • Friends
Great example of a German castle, at the top of the town of Marburg. Easily accessible by a series of stone steps. In better weather, the view would be great. The buildings have been very well maintained and it’s really worth the trip.

Wonderful Schloss
Jun 2018 • Couples
Visited the Schloss as we enjoy seeing the different history from the areas. The walk from the town center was easy but there are some steeper sections along the roads. An enjoyable walk up through the gardens and there are rest areas with seating offering views of Marburg. The Schloss plays an important historical part in the history of Marburg an the surrounding district. There is an entrance fee. Walking around you can feel the enormity of the effort required to construct this wonderful Schloss. Worth the effort to walk there.

An interesting mixture of furniture, tapestries, china and glass.

There is a very lively and colourful15C tapestry depicting the story of the prodigal son and an amusing pottery piece showing Louis Napoleon's meeting with Bismarck. It is a delightful hodgepodge of a museum.

Great Views, 500 year old Schloss
Aug 2018 • Solo
This castle sits a top the hill in Marburg and overlooks the entire valley. Views from the base of the Schloss are fantastic and you get a good view of old town Marburg. You can tour the Schloss on your own for 3 or 5 euro. The castle itself isn’t that special, it has a headboard leading into the master bedroom indicating it’s been there since the 1500’s.
