A definite must is biking along the Lahn River. Also roller blading or just walking the many trails are enjoyable. The scenery is beautiful and serene with meadows and wildlife (ducks and other birds) along the way. Another way to explore this area is by canoe. We can help you find a reasonable rental provider if needed for equipment needed for canoeing or biking along the Lahn River (see contacts below.)

One tour we like to recommend along the Lahn River is going towards Dorlar (Dorlar vacation rentals | Dorlar travel guide) (to the east) and then continue all the way on that trail. Next village is Dutenhofen. There you can stop at the restaurant. Zum Anker for lunch, which is located at a small lake (Heuchelheimer See.) They have nice outdoor seeing.
