Marburg had been long on the wish-list of places to visit. We planned a visit for Tuesday afternoon, 5 June 2018. René informed Bernd, a contact from Marburg about the planned visit. We would meet in the afternoon in Marburg. When we arrived at Paderborn-Lippstadt in the morning, it was still IMC, not unusual for the area. We waited until 13:20 CET › 11:20 UTC, and then the weather had sufficiently cleared-up to depart. At Marburg, Bernd picked us up at the airfield, and then we visited Marburg with Bernd and Karin. Marburg is a lovely place to visit. Thank you, Bernd and Karin, for showing us around and for your hospitality. It was great.

Marburg is a University town in the German federal state of Hesse, in the Lahn valley. Its cobbled streets and the Hessian architecture of the 17-18th century has been well-preserved, as the town escaped the bombings of the Second World War. The University of Marburg was founded in 1527 and dominates the public live the the town to this day. The Brothers Grimm attended the university, and collected many of their fairy tales here.

Rathaus (old town hall)

The half-timbered houses, narrow alleys, steep steps, the market-place and the castle in the old historical town remind the visitor of the fairy tales. The Marktplatz is the heart of Marburg's old town. In the center is a fountain dedicated to St. Georg, a popular meeting place for students. To the south is the old town hall and the path leading north winds its way up to the palace overlooking the town.

St. Elizabeth Church
St. Elizabeth's Church

The St. Elizabeth's Church was built by the Order of the Teutonic Knights in honour of St. Elizabeth of Hungary. The Elisabethkirche is Germany's earliest purely Gothic hall church. The burial of St. Elisabeth in the church made it an important pilgrimage site during the Middle Ages. After World War Two, former president Von Hindenburg and his wife were buried in the Elizabeth Church.

Landgrave Castle
Landgrave Castle

The Marburger Schloss or Landgrafenschloss Marburg is located on top of Schlossberg. It was built between 1248 and 1300 by the first Hessian Landgrave, Heinrich I, on the site of a previous stronghold. An important part of the castle, which is now in the possession of the university, is the university museum for cultural history, with exhibits on cultural history from prehistoric to modern times.
