A fairy tale setting come to life, Marienburg Castle rises above a landscape of rolling hills in the lush valley of the Leine River. Once a royal summer residence, the castle was originally a gift from King George V of Hanover to his wife, Queen Marie (hence the name). Today, the majestic castle is considered one of the finest examples of neo-Gothic architecture in the country. Parts of the castle are open to the public, such as the on-site museum, restaurant, and chapel. Explore the interior on a guided tour, which provides a rare chance to see what life at a royal court used to be like. You can also visit the official website for information about upcoming concerts, exhibitions, and other special events.

  • Beautiful castle on top of a hill. Has a nice restaurant. There are also souvenirs and you can get a tour through the castle and learn about its history. Don't worry if you don't know german - there is audio guide available and easy to use. The castle has its own church, where people can get married if they want.
  • It's a beautiful Castle 🏰 you have to pay like 9 euros to do an audio guided tour, I think is worth it cause you get to know the history of the Castle and an explanation of it's architecture. the surrounding areas are beautiful. If you go up the mountain walking, you will enjoy the sounds of nature and a lot of peace and tranquility.
