When you reach the upper exit of the Ruppertsklamm gorge, the path turns right through the forest up to the Mehrsberg. An ingenious panoramic section begins with views of Lahnstein, Lahneck castle, the Allerheiligenbergkapelle and Stolzenfels castle. The most comfortable way to enjoy this view is sitting or lying down on the wooden lounger in the refuge that you can find there. Through the mixed forest, which is typical of the Lahn valley, the Lahnwanderweg trail now continues to the "Zwei Tannen Hütte" and to the summit cross, situated high above the communities of Fachbach and Nievern.
The trail now leads down to Fachbach from where it climbs up again to the Lemberg. In this old vineyard area, boer goats live under semi-wild conditions. The way leads through the residential area down to the town of Bad Ems. Shortly behind the Emser Therme, you will reach the promenade. Bad Ems offers several possibilities for a break with food and drinks. The stage ends at the Kurhaus with the Römerquelle in quite a chic atmosphere.
