George V. von Hannover gave this castle to his queen Marie for her birthday, on 14th April 1857. Marie and her daughter Mary lived in the castle from 1866 to 1869. Now it’s clear where the castle and Marienberg, the hill on which the building stands, get their names from, even if Queen Marie affectionately called her new home "my little Eldorado".
Today, Ernst August von Hannover is the custodian of Marienburg. The castle is the authentically preserved summer residence of the Guelphs, Europe’s oldest dynasty of princes. There are 140 awe-inspiring rooms and halls inside, but the castle is also impressive from the outside with its facades, tower and roof structures.
Situated around 20 kilometres south of Hanover, the castle can be seen from far and wide and visitors are able to book various tours for Marienburg Castle or visit exhibitions that take you on a journey back in time.
If you would like an unforgettable, romantic wedding, complete with a horse drawn carriage, and wish to celebrate it there in style, then this is just the perfect place. Furthermore, you can also even book a helicopter flight over the castle.
