Marksburg Castle stands on a rock overlooking the town of Braubach in Rhine-Lahn area. It was built in the 12th century as Burg Braubach by the Lords of Eppstein. The name Marksburg or Markusburg is first mentioned in the 16th century. It is a Romanesque castle from the Staufer period. The ground-plan has the characteristic triangular form of this period. Originally there was a tower, which in the beginning wasnt particularly high, living quarters and the wall. The further buildings were added in the 13th century by the succeeding owners. In the 15th century the castle was taken over by Hessen and was changed into a fortress with canons.
In the following centuries the castle changed its owners many times, until in 1866 it was given to Prussia. At that time it was already in bad repair. Since the beginning of the 20th century it is the seat of the German Castle Association, which took over the restoration. Nowadays it is considered to be one of the least destroyed castles on the Rhine and is therefore very much visited, also by foreign guests. One of the most famous visitors is said to be Richard Nixon, the former president of the USA. In Japan in a Pleasure Park an original copy of Marksburg Castle has even been built.
