Tour description

This two-day tour starts in the quiet little town of Leun. You go through two locks as well as Germany's only shipping tunnel (with double lock) at Weilburg. Then you paddle along a well-wooded landscape with a beautiful flora and fauna. The destination for the day is the village of Gräveneck. In Gräveneck you can stay at the campsite, in the rooms of the campsite or in a pension.

On the second day the Lahn will take you through the small towns of Aumenau and Villmar to Runkel. The tour finally ends in Runkel at the campsite. Once there you can take the ticket or the Lahn Valley Railway back to the starting point in Leun.
