Limburg is a beautiful old town, with its castle and cathedral crowning the cliffs above the Lahn River, and the old-town lanes winding their way down the hill past beautifully restored half-timbered houses. You'll love exploring it.
This route will first run out eastwards, but the old path is soon blocked by a widened railroad-bed, so the route heads back and continues westwards to add on some real distance.
|Entering the Kornmarkt|
|Coming to the monastery: turn left just before the parking lot!|
|The old stone bridge|
|Heading east, under the castle|
So we'll turn around here and run back past the windmill, with an impressive view of the castle and cathedral perched high above.
|Heading back towards the watermill: these marathoners are running backwards for this picture!|
The path continues under a large car bridge, then past a residential neighborhood, but soon comes to open fields along the river.
|Heading westwards along the river|
NOTE: You could continue running westwards under the railroad bridge and then follow the path as it turns left (south) and then follow the little dirt path to the right as it continues along the river, or run 80 meters further and then turn right on the dirt road next to the water treatment plant, which will eventually also connect back up with the river.
