Beautiful place. centrally located. Beautiful artwork. My 5 year old enjoyed seeing the church. Nice to see such beautiful places so close to my home. We will surely be back to visit sometime.

“Good views of the town”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2012

This building is part of the Bavaria Pass system, so make sure if you are seeing at least two castles/palaces in Bavaria, that you get this pass - it’s an amazing deal! If you want to see both the Residenz and the Festung Marienburg with English tours, you have to do the Residenz at 11am and then the fortress at 3pm, as the fortress only has one English tour at day, at 3pm. It has a fabulous view over the town of Wurzburg and you can see the locks on the river and the sprawling Residenz. It’s not amazing with decorations, but the massive walls and towers are very impressive and it’s worth a trip.

“pretty, not a lot of artifacts”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2012

this festung was nice, but there is not much to see besides the building, not many furnishings or armory, some cool historical photos in one room, and the grounds are nice, you can sit on the hill or in the cafe & look over the river & town.

“Great Views of Wurzburg, Cool Fortress”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2012

The title and pictures say it all. Takes about 1hr to see it, assuming you don’t spend lots of time in the museum. I personally just like wandering the grounds and taking in the views. It a great place for a picnic. There is lots of inexpensive parking at the bottom of the fortress.
