Grimm Path

Short facts

  • Marburg

It is now legendary - the Grimm-Path with its fairytale sculptures!

The Grimm-Path attracts fairy-tale characters at lofty heights on houses, stairs and walls to climb through the historic old town up to the castle with a height difference of 109 meters.

The idea, which was implemented for the first time in 2009, was awarded the Hessian Tourism Prize in the same year and is still a very special experience that encourages young and old to participate to the greatest possible extent.
