A weekend getaway in Marburg
Be enchanted by the Botanical Gardens with their conifers, a large rhododendron collection, the spring forest and alpine garden containing mountain plants from places all over this planet. In the greenhouses you will find many plants from the tropics including a titan arum (Amorphophallus titanum), the biggest flower in the world. But Marburg has to offer much more: the Elisabethkirche, the old university, the Marburger castle and the old part of town, which is called in Marburg the ''Oberstadt'' (upper town). Marburg is also home to the Philips University, which is the oldest university in the world that was founded as a Protestant institution in 1527. Even these days the university shapes the townscape through her buildings and students.
Arrival in Marburg, discover the old town on your own
Walk to the new Botanical Gardens on the Lahnberge. Visit to the 20 hectare gardens, which have constantly changing special exhibitions, therefore you can always come back again and see something new. Walk back to Marburg.
