The Lahn River Cycling Trail

Lahn Valley

July 2012

This tour began in Feudingen about 15 Kilometers from Bad Laasphe within a few kilometers of the source of the Lahn River. First, I rode 40 kilometers to a train station northwest of my home, then from there with a train 2 hours to Feudingen. From there, I followed the Lahn River eastward to Marburg, then south to Giessen, and from there west to the Rhine River - a total of 275 kilometers.

Diese Radtour fing in Feudingen an, etwa about 15 Kilometer von Bad Laasphe und nur ein Paar Kilometer von der Donauquelle. Als erstes, bin ich 40 Kilometers zu einem Bahnhof nordöstlich von meinem Haus. Von dort ging es 2 Stunden mit einem Zug nach Feudingen. Von dort, folgte ich die Lahn ostwärts bis Marburg, dann Richtung Süden nach Giessen, und von dort bis zum Rhein - insgesamt 275 Kilometer.
