From the Bismarckturm, the route descends to the village of Garbenheim "Am Eselsberg" and then moves on to the Lahn meadows. You will accompany the Lahn for a while until you get to the glider airfield. When the weather is good, you can either watch the gliders or take a break on the Lahn island near Naunheim. Across the Lahnbrücke, we will continue our hike towards Waldgirmes. We recommend making a detour to the site of the Römerforum. If you fancy a little refreshment, the Haustädter Mühle is a good place to stop by. Afterwards, hikers will have to master the ascent to the Königstuhl where they can stroll through beautiful deciduous forest.
There is another opportunity to take a rest at the Frauenkreuz refuge. The cross, once erected to observe the peace of God, reminds people to be at peace with themselves and with creation. Shortly before the district of Rodheim we can have a look at two highlights of the following upstream stage: the castles of Vetzberg and Gleiberg. Passing the allotment gardens, you will reach today’s destination at Rodheim-Bieber with its fascinating church which is situated right in the center of the village.
