Marburg an der Lahn Things to Do: 92 reviews and 311 photos
Arriving in Marburg by train and walking up to the old town, St. Elizabeth's will be the first sight you see. And it's probably the only significant sight in the lower town. It is an impressive one, however. It's one of the oldest Gothic churches in Germany, and if you've travelled about the region the church might look a bit familiar. That's because it served as a model for Cologne's magnificent cathedral, and for the iconic St. Paul's church in Strasbourg.
The dimensions, originality and build quality of this church, dating back to the 13th century, gives you a very good idea of how important a city Marburg once was.
Directions: From the train station walk out under the highway bridge, and then bear left at the t-junction at the end of the street.
