Marksburg Castle

Set on slate rock, this impressive fortress is the only clifftop castle on the Middle Rhine that has never been destroyed. Set in an almost inaccessible location, it has been touched by neither war, earthquake or the ravages of time.

Stepping back into the Middle Ages
Sitting on top of a rocky cliff overlooking the Rhine, this impressive castle consists of a striking keep, several buildings, outer wards and ramparts. A tour of the only castle on the Rhine never to have been destroyed, with its completely intact fortifications, is like stepping back into the Middle Ages. Inside, it has an exquisite collection of armour.
