I used to take the train from Marburg to Frankfurt and I was curious about the city with the wonderful tower. So I went twice, in February and in June. The gardens were magical, typical winter in Germany. The walls and bridge were beautiful, but...More

This small castle is great, and sits at the perfect spot in Friedberg. I was a little disappointed that there weren't rooms to view inside the castle. I wish I could have seen some pictures of it being built, drawing of it in the past...More

This is, by German standards, quite a small castle on the outskirts of the old town but has a very interesting museum with exhibits of the town's history and a fascinating series on clock-making.
