    The Landgrave's Castle towers high above Marburg's old town and is one of the most striking buildings in the city. The Wilhelmsbau now houses the University Museum of Cultural History on five floors.

    The view from above is simply great and the castle itself is very impressive. It is definitely worth a visit. It is open every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. except on Mondays

    The historical significance of the complex is interesting. The castle is regarded as the nucleus of Hesse, as this was the seat of Heinrich I (1256-1308), the first Hessian landgrave. He was the grandson of Saint Elizabeth of Thuringia, who lived in Marburg as the widow of the penultimate Thuringian landgrave, Ludwig IV, and also died here. After long inheritance disputes and a war, he was finally able to rule over the western part of the former Landgraviate of Thuringia. The newly created state was named after the Hessians (originally Chatten) living here.
