Canoeing on the Lahn

A canoe trip on the Lahn River is one of the most relaxing ways to enjoy the Mittelhessen countryside. Boats may travel the Lahn from Marburg to its source at Lahnstein the entire year , and canoes and paddleboats can be rented at various points along the river. The towpaths along the riverbanks - once the domain of horses and oxen towing boats upstream - are now scenic, traffic-free paths for hikers and cyclists. Vantage points offer a completely different perspective of the landscape. Among the towns and sites of interest on the Lahn's banks are the university towns of Marburg and Gießen; the historic town of Wetzlar with its majestic cathedral; and the castles and medieval ruins of Runkel, Schaumburg, Balduinstein, Laurenburg, Langenau, Burg Stein and Nassau. Tour organizers can provide accommodation and equipment for weekend excursions and large groups. But book early, because these canoe trips are very popular. A list of organizers can be found under www.daslahntal.de.
