Cycling for everyone: take it easy or work up a sweat Lahn Valley Cycle Route

The almost 250-kilometre Lahn Valley Cycle Route is as much of a highlight for leisure cyclists as it is for sport cyclists. The most well-known cycle route in the Lahn Valley follows the river through a range of different landscapes from its source to its mouth, and offers a host of interesting off-shoots, for mountain bikers for example. One of the highlights is the romantic town of Braunfels, some 55km from Marburg, with its palace from the 13th century. The town of Wetzlar, where Goethe once lived, is the ideal destination to park the bike for an hour or two and enjoy a good walk. Discover the route here.
