    Drive up to the castle in your car

    by globetrott Updated Sep 27, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Driving up to the Marksburg is no problem in your private car, there is an ordinary road through the village and the woods, BUT you should considder that you will have to pay some moderate parking-fee there for the whole day : There is some parking-attendant during the high season,the rest of time parking seems to be free of charge !
    From the parking you still have to walk a steep path of 200 meters to the castle, or take a tiny private road with a oneway-road that is in fact forbidden for your car. I once drove there with my mother, but finally found out that the castle is un-accessable for handicapped people anyway, so it would not really help you to drive there and you will not find any parkinglots up there ! At least that small road was fine as well for my high motorhome (2,9 m).
    -------------------------------------
    Parkingfee for the whole day : cars are 2 euro
    motorhomes : 2,50 euro, buses are free of charge !

    Marksburgbahn - a street-train to the castle

    Marksburgbahn - a street-train to the castle
    4 more images

    Marksburgbahn is that small street-train that will take you from the trainstation of Braubach through the village and finally to Marksburg. Walking there might be time-consuming and exhausting, so this "train" is certainly a good solution for tourists. For handicapped people it will be the only way to get closer to the castle, BUT the castle itself will be off-limits for them, because of steep stairs and rocks that you have to walk over during the guided tour through the castle.
    There is no schedule of this street-train shown on their webpage, but I am sure it will follow the opening-times of the castle and it will start from the station shortly after the arrival of the most important trains
    -------------------------------------------
    Marksburgbahn is operated between Easter and Oct 15th
    daily except mondays !
    (except for appointed groups and in July&August)
    Single Tickets are 2,50, return is 4 euros
    children up to 12 pay 3 euros

  • From Koblenz to Braubach

    by slide_away Written Jul 2, 2007

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I arrived at Braubach Train Station on Bus 570 from Koblenz Train/Bus Station. Costs around 1,80 euro and takes about 30mins.
    There are also trains, but I had just missed one and would have had to wait another hour. Check http://bahn.hafas.de/bin/query.exe/en out for timetables (bus and trains).

    How to get to Marksburg & where to park

    by scottishvisitor Updated Feb 13, 2007

    The roads around these parts are far slower than the Autoban, you can take a leisurely drive along the B42 direct to Rudesheinn. Look out for the exit signposted Braubach and follow the signs for Marksburg Castle. Here you will find a spacious car park with an attendant (Summer Only) Parking costs for cars is 1.50 euros 2.00 euros for motor homes Motor bikes 0.50 euros Coaches are free. From the car park you then have a choice - either walking up a very steep hill or negotiating some equally steep steps - we choose both options = it only takes around five minutes but like me you might be out of breath by the time you arrive.

    Criss Crossing the Rhine

    by scottishvisitor Updated Feb 13, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We crossed the River Rhine three times by car ferry, there are no bridges in this part of the river, so the car ferries are essential if you want to visit places on both banks. We crossed the first time to get to Marksburg Castle. The ferries are frequent, running all day and into the evening, the journey is short but interesting with nice views of the Rhine and the tour boats. On the first trip I was handed a coin to throw over my shoulder in the hope of making a return journey some day.
