For river pirates and adventurers

Wild and romantic river landscapes make the Lahn a paradise for canoeists. Past untouched floodplains or steep rock faces, there is something new to discover behind every bend in the river. On the way there are enough possibilities to visit a rest stop or a camping site.

This half-day tour leads from Nassau to Nievern.
In Nassau the canoe is moored at the public entry and exit point
in the water. The tour leads through the Lahnauen past the historic town of Dausenau to Bad Ems. There, you can paddle along the stately backdrop of the spa town's noble spa architecture before, after a total of three locks
Never reached. The stage is about 12 kilometres long and takes about 4 hours including the passage through the locks.

The Lahntalbahn brings you back to the starting point along the entire route at hourly intervals!
