From the source right up to the heights of the Siegerland region and beyond – to the mouth of the Rhine 225 km away – the Lahn Valley has a lot of wonderful surprises for you. Starting in the university town of Marburg, with its charming historic quarter, the Lahn cycle path follows the winding river. Between Taunus and Westerwald, the green fields along the Lahn are slowly replaced by mountains. Over hundreds of years, the Lahn has created its route through the valley. The Lahn Cycle Path follows this route through varied countryside and attractive towns such as Weilburg, Limburg and Bad Ems. Shortly before the river joins the Rhine, you will be able to enjoy a little detour to the legendary Loreley.

Day 1: Individual arrival in Marburg

Your tour along the Lahn cycle path begins in the university town of Marburg. Wander up and down the many steps of the historic quarter and along the windy streets lined with timer-frame houses. Landgrave Castle looms high and always visible above the town. A masterpiece of Early Gothic architecture is St. Elisabeth's Church. Reserved rental bicycles are parked at the hotel ready for you.

Day 2: Marburg – Wetzlar, approx. 55 km

Cycling through the wide, quiet Lahn Valley you will reach Wetzlar, an excellent example of wooden-framed architecture, surrounded with impressive baroque buildings and towered over by its puzzling cathedral. The building from the 12 – 16th centuries is a gothic-romantic mixture and is not finished to this day, but offers visitors an interesting attraction.

Day 3: Wetzlar – Weilburg, approx. 40 km

The Lahn cycle path continues, to take you along the river between Taunus and Westerwald. During your stops, enjoy the beautiful views of two low mountain ranges. You'll recognise Weilburg by its extensive castle grounds – the eastern half stretch to almost 400 m. The town has a very rare feature – a shipping tunnel which is almost 200 m long.

Day 4: Weilburg – Limburg, approx. 40 km

Visit the majestic castle of Weilburg, which hails from renaissance times and is surprisingly well preserved. Then you will begin cycling and follow the river to your destination; Limburg. The town´s main attraction is the completely preserved medieval architecture of the town. Limburg´s famous cathedral can be seen from afar approaching the town, its beautiful, seven towers high above the town on the rock face over the Lahn River.

Day 5: Limburg – Bad Ems, approx. 45 km

Today’s route offers cyclists beautiful, varied, untouched landscape. You will 2 uphill climbs today but they will be rewarded with amazing views. One of the climbs can be avoided by taking the train (11 km). The castle of Nassau attracts visitors with its breath-taking views over the hills in the area and offers its guests modern cuisine in old surroundings. The well-known spa town of Bad Ems is also well known for its pastilles.

Day 6: Bad Ems – Coblenz, approx. 50 km + boat trip

You must gather your strengths today to tackle the crowning section of the route into the Rhine valley to the Lorelei. This famous rock provides a unique 360° view of the Rhine Valley and creates a very special atmosphere, which has inspired poets and musicians for many hundreds of years. The stretch to Coblenz is easily mastered – by boat! On the way you can see the many castles along the banks of the Rhine.

Day 7: Individual departure or extension of stay

Your cycling holiday along the Lahn Cycle Path ends after breakfast. Make your own way back to Marburg or home. We are happy to extend your stay in Coblenz if you wish.
