Guided visit of Marksburg castle at Braubach

# DescriptionREF. EXC_MARKSB

The medieval town of Braubach, surrounded by vines, is dominated by Marksburg Castle.
Set off by coach for a guided visit of Marksburg Castle. Built in the 13th century, it sits high on a cliff overlooking the Rhine from a height of more than 160 meters and towers over the narrow and winding alleyways of Braubach's historic old town.
Marksburg is the only castle in the Rhine Valley never to have been destroyed. Beginning with the construction of the keep in the 13th century, the castle grew into its present shape throughout the succeeding centuries. The castle evolved and developed due in no small part to its defense system which was exemplary; a tunnel was constructed and strengthened with impressive vaults, cannons were added as were wooden gates and drawbridges that could be raised or lowered, to act as a defensive shield. This proved to be a recipe for success, providing an excellent far-reaching defense system for the castle.
You will be able to visit some quite remarkable rooms in the castle such as the impressive kitchen with its imposing open fireplace, the ladies' quarters, the knights' hall, the armory, the small tower bedrooms, the chapel, the wine cellar, the paths along the top of the walls and many other sights which will transport you back through time to the Middle Ages.
There is a little free time before returning by coach to the boat.
