The geographical location of Marburg is unique: the journey through the valley of the Lahn offers wonderful vistas of the city’s historical buildings. A good 100 meters in elevation separate the Elisabeth church down in the valley and the towering castle of the Landgrave on the mountain. But the roads in Marburg are short! Whether over historic cobbled streets and stairs or renovated paths - the so-called "Oberstadt" is accessible to all visitors. The market square, located about halfway up the town, can even be reached with the help of elevators in Pilgrimstein.
Marburg’s old town is a pedestrian / reduced-traffic zone. The castle located another 50 meters up can be reached either on foot via the pedestrian zone of the old town or as an individual with the public city bus (line 10). You can also get there by car, but not with coaches. Minibus or taxi transfers are possible.
The middle of the reduced-traffic old town provides a great meeting place for guided tours such as the one-hour old town tour. If another meeting place is desired, such as the bus car park, Elisabeth church or Universitätsstraße, then respective tours are extended by 30 minutes accordingly.
