|Lahn: Classic individual|
If you just planned this trip as a guided or an individual tour, this 7 days journey through the Lahn valley is a popular Velociped classic.
You should make enough time for the visit of the historic old town and the Elisabeth-church (arrival by German railways possible/ parking lot at the hotel/ rental bike at the hotel).
Let's get started for the first stage of your journey. Today you cycle through the wide valley of the Lahn, along idyllic situated lakes, to Wetzlar. Discover Wetzlar's worth seeing Old Town and enjoy the spicy speciality of the region - a 'Handkäs mit Musik' (a cheese with onions in oil).
You leave Wetzlar by using the old medieval stone bridge. Soon you reach mine Fortuna, the only ore mine in Germany where ore mining is shown with the help of original equipment. The stage to Weilburg is unforgettable. The renaissance palace of Weilburg is located at a rock high above the river Lahn.
The course of the river winds it´s way between Taunus and Westerwald. You cycle on the asphalted path via Aumenau and Runkel to Limburg, well-known for the cathedral.
Today you enjoy another great scenic experience: away from all traffic the journey leads through an untouched valley from Diez to Balduinstein. This day has two ascends. Recover during a break at monastery Arnstein, at Nassau castle or in the historic pub at the Lahn. At the end of the day you reach Bad Ems, one of the most beautiful and traditional health resorts in Germany.
After 12 km the Rhine valley opens up in front of your eyes. Here you enjoy the highlight of your journey with a trip via Boppart and St. Goar to the legendary Loreley (+29 km). By ship you go back to Braubach.
Your bicycle vacation comes to an end after breakfast. It is possible to depart by train, should you wish to return to Marburg, we recommend our return transfer service (departure at 9 a.m., ca. 2,5 hours).
