With its 295 km cycling and hiking trail, the Lahn valley has a unique charm for touring cyclists. From the source at Netphen to its confluence into the Rhine, it’s possible to explore the idyllic landscape of the Lahn river by bicycle. On the way, it’s worth making a stop to see the architectural and cultural sights of Worms, and to discover the Lutheran history of the city and the Nibelungen sagas.

Our hotel has been certified Bed & Bike-friendly by the ADFC, confirming its status as the perfect accommodation option for touring cyclists.
