Through the park of the Ilmenau Anlage (park) you will get up to the Garbenheimer Warte. Afterwards, walking through the Lahn meadows will finally take you to the district of Waldgirmes. Wandering in a beautiful deciduous forest with a view of the twin castles, you will reach Rodheim-Bieber.
Distance 16.4 km
Today’s tour is characterized by ups and downs. First, we will leave the romantic town of Wetzlar and arrive at the Garbenheimer Warte through the idyllic park of the Ilmenau Anlage. From the Bismarckturm (unfortunately closed at the moment), we can look back and enjoy the view of the road ahead of us. Take a leisurely walk through the Lahnauen, visit the site of the Römerforum in the village of Waldgirmes and stroll through the beautiful forest to Rodheim-Bieber.
Make sure to have enough time for an additional trip to the site of the Römerforum in Waldgirmes. The Lahninsel near Naunheim is a great place to take a break.
