Stop at monastery Arnstein and historic Inn on Lahn before you reach Bad Ems, one of the most beautiful and traditional health baths of Germany. Enjoy a cycle tour to Loreley and the river cruise from St. Goar to traditional wine-grower town Braubach.

Itinerary

Visit the historic old town and Elisabeth church. Your rental bicycle is ready for you at the hotel.

You cycle in wide Lahn valley past idyllic little bathing ponds to Wetzlar. Explore the old town and interesting dome.

Cross the stony bridge to leave Wetzlar and soon you reach the old mine Fortuna (+8 km), Germany’s only iron-ore show mine, operating the original underground machinery. Take in the beautiful surroundings to Weilburg, where the renaissance castle stands in solitary splendour on a high rock above river Lahn. Wedged in between the heights of Taunis and Westerwald the river winds its way. You cycle on the asphalted Lein path via Aumenau and Runkel to Limburg with famous dome.

Today you cross the unspoilt valley from Diez to Balduinstein, one of the most scenic parts of the tour. Two climbs can be avoided by using the train (11 km). Have a break at monastery Arnstein, at fortress Nassau or in historic Inn on Lahn before you reach Bad Ems.
