Does the train go near the castle Marksburg?

by hecatombmi

I guess the tittle pretty much asks the question. Basically I just need to know how far we would have to travel from a train station to get to Marksburg castle, and if there is any convenient way to get there. Please e-mail me at hecatombmi@yahoo.com I would rather use my normal e-mail since I'm trying to arrange the whole trip and I have everything else going to that address.

Marksburg castle is in Braubach which has also a train station.
You can walk from there (approx. 20 min) or take the "Marksburg-Express"

and in summer there is also a small street-train, starting at the train-station - a traktor and some wagons taking you up to the castle.
In case that you have handicapped people with you I have to tell you that the last bit from the large car-park is quite steep and there was no way to see the castle for my mother that way.

Travel Tips for Braubach

The Siren and her luring song

by scottishvisitor

A large slate rock lumes up near to the narrowest and deepest part of the River Rhine. Legend tells of a siren named Lorelei who sat near by bewitching the hearts of sailors while she sang from on high combing her golden hair. The sailors were so transfixed by her beauty and her song they were no longer cautious of the treacherous stretch of water their boats hit the rock and sank. Heinrich Heine penned a song for the Lorelei here is part of it -
There sits a lovely maiden
Above so wonderous fair
with shining jewels laden
She combs her golden hair.
You won't see the Maiden here today but you can see her in sculpture form at the harbour at St. Goarhausen

Mausetrum und Binger Loch

by scottishvisitor

Hatto ll was the Archbishop of Mainz and consequently Lord of Bingen. He was very rich and owned huge grain stores, one harvest time the Rhine was flooded and the harvest was lost, the people implored him to give them grain to feed their starving families. Being a mean greedy man he refused, when asked again in desperation, he tricked them and led the people to an empty grain store and set it on fire killing all inside. Hatto was then imprisoned in the Mouse Tower in 969 where he was attacked by thousands of mice and died. In the 14th. century the tower became a watchtower for castle Ehrenfels who's people collected custom duties from the passing ships. As recently as 1975 the tower was used as a signal tower to guide ships through the narrow passage, in 1974 the quartz barrier was removed making shiping here much safer. Today the Mouse tower stands silent - but still tells the story of a mean and nasty bishop

Take what you need for a day trip

by scottishvisitor

Travelling along the scenic Rhine region you won't find many shops. Take what you need for a day trip in a small rucksack, I always have some nibbles with me in case I get the munchies Visiting old castles can be hard on your feet - stairs are hewn out of solid rock and are rough as well as steep. Watch your footing and wear solid comfortable shoes. Again because of the rural region take plenty of film or camera chip and some spare batteries just in case

hiking in the rhine-valley

by globetrott

Rheinsteig is the name of a hiking-path that will take you high above the Rhine-valley from one castle to the other and Marksburg and the closeby castles of Sterrenberg and Liebenstein in Kamp-Bornhofen are just some of the places you will get to at this side of the river Rhine.
320 km is the total distance of Rheinsteig between Bonn in the north and Wiesbaden in the south.
Here are some useful links :
Campingsites along the Rheinsteig
Youth-Hostels along the Rheinsteig
Hotels along the Rheinsteig Hiking the Rheinsteig is possible all year long and the local people say, that there isnt any bad weather at all, just the equipment might be bad.
In any case it makes sense to check the weatherforcast for this area first !

A short stop in Boppard

by scottishvisitor

I mentioned to our travel companion about my two Son's seperate school trips to Boppard many years ago. With some time to spare, Ingrid suggested we have a quick look. We weren't there long but spent an enjoyable time at one of the many pavement cafes beside the lovely Market Square. We had seen a group of Welsh school children at Marksburg earlier and met up with them again - so Boppard looks like it is still a popular place with school and youth parties.
