Marienburg Castle, embedded into the hills of the Calenberger Land, rises up on the south-western slope of the "Marienberg" Hill, some 20 km south of Hanover and 15 km north-west of Hildesheim. The original 19th-century summer residence of the Guelph family, one of Europe's oldest royal houses, is one of Germany's most significant monuments built in neogothic style.
