Lahn Area

Proud castles, impressive churches, monasteries and cathedrals testify for the culture of the river Lahn Valley. Lovely old towns with quaint half-timbered houses tell a story of former times. Here, where we can discover unspoilt nature, one of Germany's most romantic rivers runs: the Lahn river.

Half-Timbered: Limburg - 45km

Limburg's half-timbered old town is worth seeing and accommodates several of the oldest timber-framed buildings in Germany, such as the late-Romanesque, seven-turreted cathedral from the 13th century and the stone Lahn Bridge from 1315.
