tour description

Free as the wind

Feel free – not just on the bike but already during the planning of the route you create the journey yourself. We offer cyclist individuality by our cycling stages to 'create by yourself'. The Lahn bike trail will definitely not leave anything to be desired: family holiday with short stages or training stages for racers, sights for cultural interested cyclists or the spontaneous fresh air activity for Sunday driver.

From the map and the distance table, choose your desired overnight accommodation. Use our tour planner for your exact planning. Here, you can flexibly put together a trip from 4 to 11 days. In doing so, you determine all the details of your trip such as overnight accommodation, daily stages and duration of the trip – please do not forget to include an arrival day and departure day. Finally, send us your completed travel plan and we will send you an offer that has been tailored to your wishes. With our all-carefree service, we ensure a relaxed and smooth functioning of your bike tour.

Parking facilities at the hotel

No matter what place you would like to start your trip, our partner hotels always provide parking posibilities. Sometimes even free, for the entire duration of your bike trip.

Detailed information on parking at your hotel, you will receive together with the detailed travel documents two weeks prior to departure.

Condition of cycle paths

The Lahn Valley Bike Trail leads through beautiful and varied landscapes of forests, hills, meadows, wetlands and steep slopes studded with rocks. The Lahn originates in the middle of silent forests in the low mountain ranges Siegen-Wittgenstein, the most densely forested region of Germany. After the Lahn has left the mountain country, the Lahn valley widens and passes into a hilly landscape. The Lahn then runs through an open and fertile Shire before the slopes come closer and form a gorge-like valley. In the last section the Lahn runs in tight turns to its mouth with the Rhine at Lahnstein.

The Lahn Valley Cycle Route was honoured in 2006 as one of the first cycle tracks in Germany, with 4 out of 5 stars by the ADFC. Evaluated have been navigability, eviction, security and tourism infrastructure.

You cycle on mostly flat, paved hiking and cycling trails aside from traffic noise, only occasionally a few gradients must be overcome. The route is very well signposted. Most of the time the railway line runs parallel to the bike path.

Available rental bikes

If you choose to rent a velocipede-rental bike for the tour, you can choose between woman’s and men's bicycles either with 7-speed gear shift and coaster brake or 27-speed gear shift and freewheel or electric bikes. All ladies' bikes have a low opening that makes mounting and dismounting much easier. The bikes are suitable for all ladies from 150 cm in height and for all gentlemen from 165 cm in height. You simply specify your wishes at time of booking.

Transfer back to the starting point of the journey

Daily at 9am there is the possibility to transfer back to Marburg, Bad Laasphe or to the source of the Lahn with a small bus (with bike trailer). The driver comes to pick you up at your hotel and has much room for you, your luggage and where required your own bicycle. The bus takes you back to your first hotel, thus ensuring a perfect return service without transfer and the hassle of hauling luggage.

7 day hotline service

Just in case the bike chain breaks, flooding makes it impossible to continue your tour or any
other nasty surprise: You can reach us seven days a week and we will do anything to help
you as fast as possible.
