This stage provides a lot of pure peace and quiet. From Weilburg, the route takes you across a real highlight, the Ernst-Dienstbach-Steg, which was originally built as a wooden water pipeline bridge in 1706.

The tranquillity of this part of the Lahnwanderweg trail promises relaxed hiking. Enjoying nature with all your senses – you can experience it right here. However, the Ernst-Dienstbach-Steg, the Hauseley-Felsen, which is bypassed on planks across the river Lahn, and the former miners' village of Falkenbach are real highlights. And of course, the Lahn heights are also on the agenda again. The most beautiful view can be enjoyed from the Feldbergblick. If you have good weather conditions, the Großer Feldberg, which is the highest mountain of the Taunus, can be seen.

Author’s recommendation

Make a stop at the small pavilion high above the river Lahn with a wonderful view of Weilburg to take some pictures.

Turn-by-turn directions

Our tour starts at the "Denkmal" in Weilburg. The monument was built to honour the victims of the war in 1870/71. Following the Lahnwanderweg trail signposts there, you take the stairs down and cross the Lahn via the Ernst-Dienstbach-Steg. Keep to the left behind the bridge and you will find yourself on an enchanted path along the banks of the river. Walking on wooden planks directly above the water to get around the impressive Hauseley-Felsen will be a breathtaking experience. Afterwards the trail climbs up to the Lahn heights. From the pavilion you can once again have an impressive view of the former residential city of Weilburg.

The refuge "Am Steinbühl" offers a first resting place after you have made the ascent. Through the forest and past the "Eschenbörnchen" well you will reach the Feldbergblick. Soon after, you have to cross the road K 490 (please be careful!). Along the edge of the forest the hike goes downhill, then to the right through the fields and you will come to a small pond with some resting benches.

In the forest near Gräveneck, we recommend a detour to the Wittekindstollen where local mining history is ever-present. After another forest passage you cross the road L3452 and the idyllic Wirbelauer Bach. Through the forest, over meadows and through orchards, the small hamlet of Falkenbach finally comes into view. Leave it to your left and continue downhill towards the sluice.

When the little road curves to the right direction, the Lahnwanderweg trail leads uphill and then once again through a long and quiet forest passage. You will find another opportunity to just look around and linger in the Lahnaue. Directly along the Lahn, you will finally arrive at the stage's destination Aumenau.

Der Höhepunkt der Tour ist unserer Ansicht nach direkt der Beginn: Die schöne Altstadt von Weilburg sowie der grandiose Schlossgarten. Danach verläuft die Tour nach kurzem Pfadabschnitt längere Zeit über breite Waldwege, die auf uns etwas monoton wirkten. Erst gegen Ende wird die Wanderung wieder etwas abwechslungsreicher und endet schließlich idyllisch an der Lahn.
