Restaurant Ratsschanke serves excellent traditional food that is not overpriced like many of the restaurants in Marburg. Service is very good, English menus, and the staff speaks excellent English. You will get to experience what an old school traditional German restaurant is like. If you are looking to experience traditional German fare in a traditional German restaurant, this is a... More

It's been 31 years since I left Marburg. And I'm so glad I made it a point to come back during this month-long tour of Hesse and Alsace. So many fond memories that only a beautiful place like this can honour and reward. And what could be better in the crisp autumn air but a plateful of German savouries? The... More

Using Trip advisor ratings as a guide, part of our group decided to eat outside for lunch as the location is excellent. After we had ordered and received our drinks, it started to rain. They moved us inside with a table for six near the bar. The inside is small and rather tight but satisfactory. The food was excellent--everyone in... More

Traditional German cuisine. This place is really great! It is run by a local family, giving a personal touch to the service and the food. The service is great, and they speak English.

I got what you'd expect from your corner German Kniepe - a tasty Schnitzel with a tasty Pfefferling sauce and spaetzle. It was good, but nothing special at all. The price wasn't bad, but you can get better for less at other places in Marburg. The location is top-notch, though.

We had reserved a table indoors - but at the end of a hot touring day we realized that there was a large garden with an outdoor restaurant as well. Having our cocktails outdoors, the waiter advised us that we could only order from the full restaurant menu until 18:30. This being ok, I went inside to advise the manager... More

It takes a an effort to walk up to the castle, but the food and view are worth the effort. Both indoor and outdoor dining is available, but the menue outside is more limited.

Stopped in twice for a couple of meals. Restaurant is at a nice location just at the town square. It's quite narrow inside and has a nice historic feel / decor which adds to the atmosphere.
