My 2nd visit here, mostly for the museum & Riemenschneider research, so didn't go into the fortress proper. But did a lot of wandering around, including the towers where prisoners were kept. Museum & information staff quite helpful.

From its hill top the fortress dominates the city. The garden is on the river side and it is the best place to view the river and the city. It is not to large, but the gardens are very well maintained.

Lovely peaceful garden with roses when we were there, places to sit. Very good view over rooftops and city so good place to take photos. This was a bonus gem of a find in this very busy city. Entry was free.

First you have to go through an inconspicuous passage next to the chapel to get to the garden, but then you will be honored by one of the best views over the City. Entrance is free of charge.

The garden at the Marienburg fortress is nice to visit, as is walking around the fortress itself. Magnificent view over the city of Wurzburg.

The gardens are around the castle and are small and beautiful, but nothing very special. The view is probably the best one in Wurzburg. Once visiting Marienberg, just go outside it and visit the gardens too. It will take you around 15 minutes to visit...More

The view from the garden is amazing, if is clearly sky you can all Wurzburg. In the autumn is the best seasons, in my opinion.
