Marburg, Hessen (1) – The City (Day One)
Our first excursion took us to Marburg in the state of Hessen. About 200KM outside of Frankfurt, the one hour fast train took us north to this university town with a population of approximately 72,000.
A mix of old and modern architecture, the town is located in the valley of the river Lahn.
Looking south from a narrow walking path near Ketzerbach, we can see Marburg Castle (a.k.a. Landgrave Palace) in the distance.
