Marienberg Fortress by EuroTourData

Marienberg Fortress was built around 1200 and was the residence of prince-bishops. The fortress got its modern appearance after reconstruction in 1708. The fortress was besieged in 1525 during the German Peasants' War. During the Thirty Years' War, the Swedes under the command of Gustav II Adolf captured the fortress on October 18, 1631. During the Campaign of the Main of 1866, artillery of the prussian army fired Marienberg, which caused heavy fire on the Marienberg, but the artillery of the fortress was able to effectively return fire, and Marienberg remained undefeated until the armistice. Info is based on the article Festung Marienberg of German Wikipedia.
