Limburg an der Lahn – A town dominated by the Limburger Rock at its centre
Location: At the centre of the Limburg Basin
Frankfurt International Airport, 63 kilometres to the south, is just 20 minutes away by the high-speed ICE train that runs through Limburg, or just an under an hour’s drive on the A3 Autobahn. Koblenz is 53 kilometres to the west. The town is situated in the fertile region between the Westerwald and Taunus mountain ranges, and whilst not spectacularly high at under 1,000 metres, they do provide a stunning backdrop to the town.
Business: A short commute to Frankfurt's business centre
With the ICE train linking Limburg an der Lahn to Frankfurt in under 20 minutes, the town is an excellent place to stay if you do not wish to stay within the confines of the city for your event. A number of excellent conference and exhibition facilities in nearby Wiesbaden and Frankfurt are within easy commutable distances.
Culture: Narrow streets and timber frame houses
The 'Old Town' delights visitors with its cobbled streets and 17th Century timber framed houses. The whole area has been placed under a historic monument protection order due to the number of ancient buildings that have survived almost untouched by damage of wars and time. The focal point of the town is the 700-year-old stone Lahn Bridge, the Alte Lahnbrücke. From here, you get marvellous views across the river to the old town and the Cathedral of St George that looks down upon it.
Activities: Have a day on the river
The 'Wappen von Limburg' is a city run tour boat that will gently take you along the Lahn, pointing out historic and interesting sites as you cruise between Dietkirchen and Balduinstein. With a fully equipped bar and restaurant on board, it has everything you need for an enjoyable day or evening on the river.
