Stage 2 Lahnstein – Diez (50 Km)

In the morning you will start your cycling tour of the idyllic Lahn valley. Right at the beginning you will pass by a historical inn located at the Lahn river, which was visited by Goethe to dine. Bad Ems, an old spa town and much loved by the Russian tsars, will be the first resting place. Then we will continue to Dausenau, a picturesque place by the Lahn river. From here you will cycle on to Nassau and to Laurenburg. Then you should cover the stretch to Balduinstein by train to avoid going up a steep hill of about 2,5 kilometres. From Balduinstein onwards the cycling path is well tended and on flat terrain. In Diez several places of interest such as the Oranienstein baroque palace, Diezer Grafenschloß, Schaumburg palace, Laurenburg castle or narrow back lanes of the old part of Diez invite you to linger on.
