Holidays in the Lahn valley: Nature and culture on the way to the Rhine

Starting in the Rothaargebirge hills near Siegen, the Lahn river follows its original 242km course through unspoilt countryside, passing places of cultural and historical interest before flowing into the Rhine in Lahnstein. While on holiday in the region, you can discover numerous palaces and castles, impressive churches, abbeys and cathedrals, and legacies from Celtic and Roman times. The Lahn valley offers this and so much more – a world away from the hustle and bustle of city life, yet only an hour from Frankfurt. Holidays by the river Lahn offer the best of both worlds: active pursuits and the time and space to relax.
