Our cycle tours on the Lahn

This is how beautiful it is on the Lahn river

Lahn cycle path close to nature

From the source in the Rothaargebirge mountains to the mouth of the Rhine, you can enjoy 235 kilometers of excellent cycling along the Lahn. The route is mostly gently sloping, there are some climbs, but you can avoid them.


Whether it's Limburg Cathedral or the Elisabeth Church in historic Marburg, the Renaissance castle in Weilburg or the Marburg Landgrave's Palace, it's the variety that makes it. Even those who like cute half-timbered villages will find what they are looking for here. The emperor's spa Bad Ems is home to a baroque spa house, a fountain and an amusement arcade. The disused iron ore mine Grube Fortuna is worth a visit. Last but not least, there are plenty of museums along the way: Mushroom Museum, Wood Technology Museum, Radio Museum or Diocesan Museum, to name just a few.


The classical music fan will of course visit the Lottehaus in the Goethe town of Wetzlar, where Goethe was almost a permanent guest in the summer of 1772 and wrote his experiences in "The Sorrows of Young Werther". In Marburg, the Hessisches Landestheater offers performances, while the Waggonhalle

is more about music. In summer, various festivals take place: the Lahn Festival "Against the Current", the Lahneck Live Culture Festival, the Lahnsteiner Blues Festival, etc.

Varied culinary delights

Student pubs in Marbug or cozy country inns in half-timbered towns, restaurants with international cuisine in the university town of Marburg or the fish market in Wetzlar ... The range is wide. Typically, one dines on Limburg Edelsäcker, a cutlet filled with sauerkraut, or fish from the Lahn River such as carp, tench, pike perch or perch, and drinks the local wine, mostly Pinot Noir, Riesling or Müller Thurgau, which is grown in steep vineyards.

Nature and sustainability

On the Lahn, sustainable tourism development is cultivated and promoted, and that is a good thing. Salmon and sea trout are to become native here again. For this reason, fish ladders have been built and salmon breeding stations have been established. Fauna and flora are numerous, as some nature reserves and landscape protection areas, such as the "Auenverbund Lahn-Dill", border on the Lahn. As the most environmentally friendly means of transport, the bicycle is particularly encouraged. Perfect, therefore, for a cycling vacation close to nature.
