Experience the Lahn Valley barrier-free

Starting in the Rothaar Mountains near Siegen, the River Lahn flows across over 242 km of idyllic nature, past cultural-historical sites and richly diverse landscapes before meeting the Rhine at Lahnstein. The banks of the Lahn are studded with relics of the Celtic and Roman periods. Picturesque towns welcome you for shopping and sightseeing.

The Lahn Valley is a perfect destination for a relaxing holiday, far-removed from industrialised, urban areas, yet just an hour from Frankfurt.
