Attractions & Sights

Marburg is a venerable university town located right in the heart of Germany. Many famous historic figures have called Marburg their home including Emil von Behring, who discovered the vaccination for diphtheria, the Brothers Grimm wrote their famous fairy tales here, Denis Papin, who invented the steam engine, as well as Zwingli and Luther, who met in the Landgrave Castle in Marburg during the Colloquy to resolve their religious dispute. However, the most famous person of Marburg is probably Saint Elizabeth of Thuringia, who dedicated her life to the sick and poor about 800 years ago.

The VILA VITA Hotel & Residenz Rosenpark Marburg enjoys a quiet location in walking distance of the historic city center, the castle and the main train station.
