|Lahn: sportive from the source|
The sportive 6-day trip from the spring to the mouth.
This trip starts at the source of the river Lahn in the middle of the forest Rothaargebirge. You will discover the lively town of Marburg, seat of the historical university, the Elisabeth church and the Landgraves castle. The towns casual atmosphere and the homey bars are waiting for you to stop by. Afterwards, enjoy the calm in the narrow streets of Wetzlar historical Old-town with its typical half-timbered constructions and marvel at the cathedral of Limburg, famous in the whole world. But Limburg has even more to offer: The beautiful Old-town has been designated a historic monument! After Limburg you will have the chance to enjoy the beauty of the landscape while cycling through untouched valleys far off from any traffic before reaching your final destination Koblenz at the river Rhine.
In the middle of the forest you stay in a cosy hotel directly at the spring of the Lahn (if you arrive by train it is possible to book a transfer from the train station in Feudingen).
Time flies on your first day of cycling. Starting at the spring of the Lahn you roll through densely wooded countryside via Feudingen to Bad Laasphe. You cycle via Biedenkopf into the old town of Marburg. The famous Elisabeth church and the landgraves' palace are worth visiting. In the evening you can enjoy wonderful hours in international restaurants or in students pubs.
Today you cycle through wide meadows at the Lahn via Giessen to the cathedral town of Wetzlar. You should definitely plan a visit of the Old Town - it's worth it! Don't miss out the visitors mine pit Fortuna, it is absolutely worth seeing.
Another highlight is waiting for you. Using the Lahn bike trail you cycle to Weilburg. You should not miss to visit the renaissance palace of Weilburg. Pretty close along the river you follow the Lahn bicycle path. Visit the probably largest ruin of a castle in Germany in Runkel, before you reach the world famous cathedral and the old town of Limburg.
Once again the Lahn bicycle path offers great cycling experiences. On this former towpath you cycle to Balduinstein. On this part of the tour the bicycle path seems to be taken out of a picture book. A stop at a Lahn wine grower or in an old pub at the Lahn refreshes mind and palate. Visit Nassau castle and the worth seeing traditional spa Bad Ems, before the Rhine valley opens up in front of your eyes. In Lahnstein you have to say goodbye to the idyllic course of the river Lahn, because for the last remaining kilometres you follow the Rhine bicycle path to the centre of Koblenz.
After breakfast your long journey from the spring of the Lahn to the Rhine ends. You can add our tours along the Rhine, Moselle, Ahr and Kyll or you may have another nice cycling holiday in the centre of Germany.
