Breidenbach is such a German name, isn’t it? I’d say, and you might not know that there’s a small village in France with the same name.
There’s not comparing the two. This German speaking one lies within the Lahn-Dill-Bergland Nature Park.
Most of the activities in Breidenbach revolve around the nature park. Hiking is a big one, and there’s an 86 kilometer trail that’ll take you around to see plenty of it.
There is a “Hikers Headquarters” if you’re interested in getting a guide to take you around the many trails, or if you just want to meet up with others like yourself if you don’t like hiking alone.
Not an option for you moms out there who don’t get five minutes peace & quiet, huh? ;-)
A number of specific hiking trails bring you through Breidenbach’s region of the Lahn-Dill-Bergland, including the Westerwaldsteig. Nordic Walking around here is a fun activity, and so is all the skiing that goes on here during the snowy winter.
Too cold for you? No biggie, just wait for it all to melt to see the nearby Landgrafenschloss Biedenkopf’s museum and restaurant. Wait, you gotta see it during the non-winter months, the medieval castle is only open from April to November.
Come to think of it, you can’t enjoy the outdoor pool in the village of Niederdieten when its cold either; even if it is heated.
Some weather here in Breidenbach might make you want to come indoors, but so will the artwork found in the 19th century Evangelical Church in the village of Achenbach, and the Protestant Church over in Wolzhausen.
Take that, Breidenbach, France… this German one here is really great. And I won’t ever let anyone forget it. ;-)
