Fortress Marienberg in Würzburg, Germany

This is the Festung Marienberg, called in English as Fortress Marienberg. It is a famous landmark on the Main river in Würzburg, in the state of Bavaria, Germany. Now it is use as a park and museum.

Here are some images I took last August 2010.

In 704 A.D., the Marienkirche was built atop a former Celtic shelter, and in the 13th century it was surrounded by the first fortification. In 1482, the main castle was encircled by a medieval ring wall with the Scherenberg gate. Some of the parts of the fortress accessible to the public are the Scherenberg-Tor (Gate) the Burgfried (keep), a chapel, a well house and Fürstenbaumuseum (Bibra Stairs / Lorenz von Bibra apartments, and the Julius Echter apartments).
