Hello, thanks for your wonderful link on all things Marberg. you provided it to me on the Fodors page today "Calling Middle German Travelers". We have visited Marber a couple of times and always look forward to returning. Thank you for all the wonderful ideas - particularly "off the beaten path". Cheers! Jeff
Has anyone heard of Marburg's "Patron Saint of Drinking"? Supposedly in the old town pubs there is a bust relief of him, but not sure which ones. He's also known as "Fraele" and "Bleichenrat". He died in 1938 but there were articles still written about him as of 1987. His name was Georg Allendorf; he is my husband's great-grandfather. I've been to Germany many years ago and loved it. My family is thinking of a trip to Marburg someday. There are supposedly many stories about Georg. Does anyone have any recommendations on how and where to find a local guide (who speaks English) who knows the town's history, and could take us around town and to the pubs? This is a great site--love the pics and the info. Any help or suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.

Hi, I would like to get advices on places to visit. I am reaching franfurt early morning on 10 june,going to berlin directly on 10 june for 3days 2 nights, however, due to airline company cancelling the flight i need to bring forward one day, hence i will reach frankfurt on 9 june instead. Shall i 1. spend one more day in berlin, or 2. stay a day to explore franfurt,or 3.spend a night in dresden before going to berlin, or 4. spend a night in marburg before going to berlin? Or do you have any recommendation ? Thank you
We have visited Marburg many times, and we always stay at the Europischer Hof near the Elisabeth church. I am wondering if there is a more picturesque place someone can recommend. Thank you!
