The picturesque old town and the historic market place with its richly decorated half-timbered houses invite you to linger. Some of the graceful half-timbered houses at the flower-decorated market square and at the entrance to the old town offer comfortable accommodation. Here the guest can touch the past. The entrance to the old town and the market square are the backdrop for all kinds of market activities. At any time of the year the exceptionally beautiful and lovingly maintained old town with its small shops is worth a visit.

Every year the more than 750 year old town with its beautiful sights attracts many visitors from near and far. Come and see our romantic old town centre, the fairy-tale-like castle or our splendid spa gardens!
Last not least, it is the numerous cultural events that make our town so lovable and pleasant to live in. But you should come and see for yourself! In the „Lahn-Dill“ region, Braunfels is the most prominent place of touristic interest. As an officially recognized climatic health resort, acclaimed for ist family-friednliness, Braunfels is member of several German scenic travelling routes, such as the „Lahn Valley Holiday Route“, the „German Half-Timbered Houses Route“ or the „Oranjeroute“. Culture-wise, Braunfels has much to offer to its guests and visitors: Concerts, theatre, guided tours of town and castle, festivals and markets, hiking tours and sport activities - the town as well as the surrounding countryside invite old an young for a refreshing break!
