This hike takes you to some of the more dramatic overlooks of the Lahn river. It starts in the small castle town of Nassau and ends at the ancient Monastery of Arnsberg.
This hike takes you to two of the most visually impressive castles in the Westerwald. You will also try and get the best views of the castle from a distance, something often overlooked when hiking to a castle.
Deep in the Westerwald sits the great castle of the Solms family. Better described as a palace, it represents the 19th century ambitions of the Solms family. This hike is all about trying to get the best views of the castle.
The Westerwald is a heavily forested highland region that hugs the right bank of the Rhine Valley as it cuts through a series of small mountain ranges. To a large extent unsuitable for agriculture, the region did not develop instep with nearby regions, leaving a heritage of medieval towns, castles, and monasteries.
