Rhein-Lahn-Kreis — Spas, Vineyards, Castles, Ancient Towns

In the north-west corner of the Rhineland-Palatinate state and bordering on Hesse is the picturesque Rhein-Lahn-Kreis. Following the Lahn on its journey to meet the Rhine in the south-west of the district, this fertile area is home to many vineyards and a rich history of castles and ancient towns.

Classy Bad Ems is on the Lahn. It is a popular bathing resort and surrounded by the Nassau nature reserve. It is also at the base of a steep hillside and a great House of Orange castle is perched on its peak. But most of the regions sites are on the Rhine itself.

Lahnstein has a great castle. The famous Burg Katz is on the same stretch (lit up during Rhine in Flames) and is believed to be the first location on the river for Riesling grapes to be planted. But the best legends in the Rhein-Lahn-Kreis focus around the “dangerous” Loreley Rocks at a sharp bend in the Rhine.

Leaving the water, however, there are plenty of scenic trails along the gorge sides to explore. Although some are very steep from the base, once up high you can see for miles in all directions — so bring your camera!
