For Marksburg this means that

- At warning level 3: 5 tested or equivalent persons can be in the castle at the same time, as well as unlimited vaccinated or recovered persons.

opening hours


Opening hours:
Every day we offer castle tours every quarter of an hour between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Because it is not only the castle itself, the restoration and maintenance costs of which are mainly covered by ticket sales, the museum shop and the castle tavern, but also its owner, the Deutsche Burgenvereinigung eV, finances its diverse activities from this by far the most important source for the association , the work of the DBV, to which 3,000 members belong throughout Germany and which runs the European Castle Institute, is at risk because of the still significantly reduced income. We would be happy if as many visitors as possible would visit our beautiful castle in order to cover the costs with the entrance fees.
If the castle is allowed to reopen regularly, the following rule applies to the summer season:
Castle tours take place between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. (last tour starts at 5 p.m.), duration: approx. 50 minutes.

There is a guided tour in English every day at 1 p.m. (only in the summer season; slight changes at short notice are possible).
