Completely preserved knight`s castle
Between Bingen and Koblenz, in the midst of the UNESCO Upper Middle Rhine Valley there is a castle every few kilometers. Many of them can still be visited today - no doubt they are one of the crowd pullers in our region. They all have in common, that they neglected over the centuries and have become ruins. As part of the emerging Rhine Romanticism they were then extensively renovated. Not so the Marksburg! As the only hilltop castle in the Middle Rhine it has survived the ages intact and gives us an unchanged view in its founding years today .
A journey to the Middle Ages
The importance of the Marksburg is especially its complete preservation as a medieval fortification. The imposing fortress with its buildings dating from the 13th to 15th centuries is graded with keep, several buildings, kennels and bastions on a rock cone above the town of Braubach and allows today - through interesting and typical interiors such as castle kitchen, knight's hall, bower, chapel, armory, wine cellar, battlements and Turmstuben - a trip to the Middle Ages!
