About the tour with boat trip

In fact, her banishment from the Prussian court continues to have an effect to this day. She could have become the queen of three kingdoms. But her love for a man pushed her to the margins of history.

The guided tour by cult-touren offers insights into the biography of Marianne of Prussia for the first time and visits those places that show her centre of life, Schloss Reinhartshausen, from a new perspective – the realm of a strong, self-confident princess with a forgotten museum, a castle and an island in the Rheingau.

Princess Marianne loved her excursions to the island, which is now called Mariannenaue. It has been a nature reserve for years and is a veritable treasure trove of rare flora and fauna. Many species survived here that were crucial for the renaturation of the Rhine.

A guided tour of sculptures, a round trip around the island of Mariannenaue with vespers and wine on deck, and a visit to St. John’s Church in Erbach and the noblewoman’s grave show stations on a journey into the realm of a princess who never lost her dignity even in exile. She herself felt her life “…like a novel.”
