A canoe tour on the Lahn River is great fun for the whole family! There are local businesses for renting canoes. They even do guided tours.

We recommend this one in Weilburg (Weilburg vacation rentals | Weilburg travel guide):

Kanutouren / Kanuverleih Weilburg
Aktivhotel Lindenhof
Frankfurt (Frankfurt vacation rentals | Frankfurt travel guide) Strasse 23, 35796 Weilburg
Phone: +49 (0) 6471 490154

They offer various packages for trips along the Lahn River. In their basic package you rent the canoes and all the equipment, incl. pick-up of the canoes after the tour. Before the canoe tour they provide you with tips and guidance to make sure you know how to get along on the Lahn River. For a day tour the price is 17 Euro per person for this package. It starts in Löhnberg (Löhnberg vacation rentals | Löhnberg travel guide) until Führfurt, over Runkel (Runkel vacation rentals | Runkel travel guide).

You will get even more out of their Clubtour. This tour starts in the morning at 9:30 am at Frankfurter Strasse 23 in Weilburg. They give you a tour and overview about the canoes at the Weilburger Bootshaus. The canoe tour itself then takes 3 hours. Enjoy the great scenery along the Lahn River, historic castles, and more. There will be a short stop in between, where you can have a picnic and lunch. The tour then ends around 3 pm in Führfurt. A bus will pick you up and return you to Weilburg. The team of the Aktivhof Linden is already waiting for you and will prepare a delicious BBQ with steaks, German sausages, and fresh seasonal salads. Drink a cold beer in their Biergarten and enjoy the rest of the day in a relaxing atmosphere. They also own an Irish pub, where you can enjoy live music on Fridays and Saturdays. You can even book canoe tours along the Lahn River that span multiple days!
