We totally loved our visit here!! Such a gorgeous castle inside and out. They prefer that you pay in cash, so be prepared with Euros. Photos are allowed outside, but not inside. I'm guessing that you'd never make it through as there is so much...More

The view as you approach the castle grounds by car (we approached from Nordstemmen) is amazing, like a fairy tale castle. We found the staff in the little reception-shop very friendly considering some of us could not speak any German. It was a desperately cold...More

Took a drive out from Hannover to see a bit of the countryside. This is worth a drive by/short visit. It's not well curated, e.g., providing explanations of the history etc. Lovely setting and peaceful.

Saw this while watching "Königliche Dynastien" on ZDF about the House of Welf/Hanover. Basically this is a must if you're interested in European history and royal houses in particular. A few tips: 1) it offers guided tours, about an hour in length, and audio guides...More

Hello. We will be staying in Hanover and are planning on a trip to Marienburg. We plan on leaving Hanover by train at around 9am to arrive around 10am, including the short walk, then returning the same way from 12pm to 1pm. Is two hours enough time to see everything at the Castle? Thanks.

I would say it is enough time but it does depend also on the weather, whether you stop at the cafe and whether or not there is another exhibition to view in addition to the guided tour of the castle.

As far as I know you must go to the Central station of Hildesheim and take the S-bahn , take S4, in 20 min tops you will be at the Marienburg Castle. But check first at your hotel this info, just to be sure. Have fun!
