Landgrafenschloss Marburg

Home of the Marburger Universitätsmuseum für Kulturgeschichte, the Marburger Schloss dates back to the 11th Century. Considered to be one of the most beautiful structures in the city, the castle was the first residence of the Earl of Hessen. The structure has been modified several times over the centuries. Today, the castle is one of the major tourist attractions in the town. Guided tours to the castle are available as well.

St. Elizabeth's Church

St. Elizabeth's Church stands as a testament to the genius of the Gothic style. This impressive church was constructed in 1235, the year that Elizabeth of Hungary was canonized, making her Saint Elizabeth. The church was built based on orders made by the Teutonic Knights, a religious group that was originally formed in the 12th-Century as a military order. Made almost entirely of sandstone, the church features a vaulted ceiling that soars 20 meters (66 feet) above the ground floor of the church. In the 16th-Century, the Teutonic Knights and many others converted to Protestantism and the church has carried out Protestant services ever since. Surprisingly, the church escaped extensive damage during World War I and II and today visitors can still experience the peaceful and hushed interior of this remarkable church.

Wetzlar Cathedral

Wetzlar Dom, also known as the Wetzlar Cathedral, remains an imposing religious edifice in the heart of Wetzlar. Found on Goethestraße, it rests by the banks of the scenic River Lahn. Dating back to the 13th Century, the cathedral has not been completely built as the west facade still remains incomplete. Since it was built over several centuries, it features elements of Baroque, Gothic and Romanesque styles of architecture. During World War II, this simultaneum was heavily bombarded. The ornate organ and stained glass windows had to be re-installed through advanced technology. The church also remains the site of several festive concerts and other cultural events.

Mathematikum

Located in the city of Gießen, Mathematikum is a modern maths museum that attempts to teach visitors the various concepts of maths through its unusual installations and exhibits. Founded by German mathematician Albrecht Beutelspacher, the museum attracts hundreds and thousands of visitors every year from all ages who attempt to learn through practical exhibits instead of formulae or equations. The interactive exhibits here include mirrors, wooden puzzles, build bridges, soap films, etc with many being larger than life. A special event every month here is the Beutelspachers Sofa where a mathematician is invited for an interview by the founder followed by a Q and A session with the audience. A must-visit for all tourists!

Castle Greifenstein

Overlooking the scenic Danube River, the Burg Greifenstein is believed to have existed since the 11th Century. In the 16th Century, the castle was converted into a prison. The castle withstood many wars and was under repairs and renovations continually. Until the early 19th Century, the castle was owned by the counts of Passau. The castle fell into private hands on a number of occasions over the course of several centuries, with William Maurice of Solms-Greifenstein being its last owner. The castle is currently preserved and maintained by the Greifenstein Society.

Wilhelmsturm

Set atop a hill, Wilhelmsturm is a 41-meters (134.5 feet) tall stone tower that overlooks the picturesque town of Dillenburg. Surrounded by lush green trees, this tower features a museum and space to host wedding ceremonies and receptions. For panoramic views and wonderful photo-op sessions, Wilhelmsturm is a favorite among tourists.
