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.

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

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