Marburg, Hessen (2) – Marburg Castle (Day One)

Marburg Castle a.k.a. Landgrave Palace, is situated on a hilltop on the west side of the Lahn River.  Close to the central core of the city, we were able to foot the climb with no problems.  Once home to the Landgraves of Hessen, it now serves as a museum.

Coming up to the castle from the back, a view from Hainweg street

The deep moat that runs along the back

A back entrance

A small vineyard is visible with the blue tarp located in the front walkway to the castle.

Pretty lined pathway to the garden

Being mid-September, there weren’t too many blooms left.
