From its source at Netphen to Lahnstein where it flows into the Rhine, the Lahn covers 245 km. The route leads on largely car-free and mostly asphalted roads through the flat river landscape. In 2013, the Lahntalradweg was awarded 4 (out of max. 5) stars. The assessments included the accessibility, signposting and safety and the tourist offer. A unique attraction is the lock for canoeists at the ship tunnel in Weilburg.
The Lahntal, nature's stilled dream
Proud ditches and fortresses, imposing churches, monasteries and cathedrals bear witness to the centuries-old history of the Lahntal . Cozy old towns with narrow streets and picturesque half-timbered houses bear witness to the activity of days gone by. The idyllic Lahntal with its quiet towns and forested mountains still has its own appeal. If you take the time for it, you can still experience it here, the stilled dream of nature.
