Through the meadows of the Lahn you will continue your way to the community of Eschhofen. Behind Eschhofen you will get the chance to have a look across the river Lahn at the gigantic church St. Lubentius Basilika in the village of Dietkirchen. The wide forest trail will turn into a narrow path shortly before Runkel which leads past the Blücher entrenchment. Runkel is another medieval town in the collection and visitors should definitely make sure to visit the enormous castle.
Walking across the old bridge and thereby crossing the Lahn, you will walk up to the Otto-Bruchhäuser-Tempel which is a viewing pavilion that is situated high above the Lahn. The trail will now turn into a path and will lead hikers on a way that runs above the Wehrley nature reserve. To your right, you will find a short detour that leads to a worthwhile viewpoint with a view across the river over the Bodensteiner Lay and the King-Konrad-Denkmal. Along the yellow-marked access road we descend to the village of Villmar. We would recommend a visit to the new Lahn-Marmor-Musuem as well as the Unica marble quarry.
