Favorite thing: This reminds me a bit of London, although the plaques are not round. But they are at the walls of famous and important buildings and other sights to see. As they taken care of and mounted at the walls by Marburg’s officials, rule no 1 applies which is “no other language exists than German” (see my first general tip). Non-German speaking visitors might be able to identify famous names and read the year, but the rest is all good guess only. I seriously hope that Marburg’s officials change their attitude towards the existence of non-German speaking visitors.
