Martinsburg Castle, Lahnstein

Schloss Martinsburg in Lahnstein
Martinsburg Castle, Lahnstein

Martinsburg, with its hexagonal keep, was built at the end of the 14th century on the banks of the Rhine and was once a toll castle. This picturesque ensemble was erected at the same time as the town fortifications. The pointed-arch gateway in the east wall still displays a small defence gallery with a coat of arms. Further elements of the building and towers were added between the 14th and the 18th centuries.
