Marburg is a delightful, unspoilt university town squeezed between the picturesque Lahn River and its castle hill.
Founded by the Landgrave of Hesse in 1527, the Philipp University is the world's oldest Protestant university.
St. Elisabeth's Church, erected between 1235 and 1283, is considered the oldest purely Gothic church in German-speaking areas and has inspired the design of Cologne Cathedral.
Climb the steps to get to the imposing Medieval-Renaissance Marburg Castle and get a splendid view of the town.
