Marienberg Fortress Tours

Marienberg Fortress
Perched high on a hilltop above Würzburg, overlooking the River Main, the Marienberg Fortress is an unmistakable landmark and the mighty castle boasts a long history, first built over the remains of a Bronze Age fort. Rising to prominence as the seat of the Prince-Bishops in the mid-13th century, the fortress has seen battle numerous times throughout history, falling to the Swedes during Thirty Years’ War and suffering extensive damage during World War II air raids.

Today, the Marienberg Fortress has been painstakingly restored and has become a popular tourist attraction, with highlights including the 13th-century circular keep, the exquisite 16th-century Princes’ Garden and the Marienkirche, one of Germany’s oldest round churches. Inside the castle is the Baroque Armory, where the Mainfränkisches Museum houses an impressive collection of Franconian art; the opulent bishops' apartments, home to the Furstenbau Museum; and the Princes’ Bibra Apartment, filled with antique furnishings, notable paintings and elaborate tapestries.
