The only never destroyed hilltop castle on the Middle Rhine

The value and significance of Marksburg Castle lies above all in its complete preservation as a medieval fortification. The imposing fortress with buildings mainly from the 13th to 15th century is staggered with keep, several buildings, kennels and bastions on a rocky cone 90 metres above the romantic little town of Braubach and today - also due to typical interiors worth seeing, such as the castle kitchen, knight's hall, bower, chapel, armoury, wine cellar, battlements and tower rooms - allows a journey into the Middle Ages!
