William Turner - Standort 04 | Braubach

Approaching Braubach from Lahnstein, Turner is greeted by this wonderful

view of the Marksburg shortly before reaching the town. Turner looked

up from the riverbank to the hilltop and captured the view in several

sketches. The watercolour itself wasn’t painted until 1820 – three years

after his visit. In the centre of the painting we see the Marksburg,

framed by mighty rocks and verdant trees. The foreground shows people

resting, whilst the river is only vaguely perceptible. He crosses the

river again by ferry and the same day walks as far as St. Goar. Today

Marksburg Castle is owned by the Deutsche Burgenvereinigung (German

Castles Association) and is open to the public.
