The tour offers an adventure loop on the monastery path, which combines the attractive landscape with a culture steeped in history (former ramparts, Celtic barrows).
Distance 12.6 km
There is much to discover on the "Laubach Celtic Tour"! For example, we come across a Roman ditch, which is actually not a Roman ditch at all, but of Celtic origin (naming by erroneous tradition), discover a former rampart and can marvel at Celtic burial mounds! We hike along the premium hiking trail "Klosterweg", the old trade route "Butterpfad" lets us experience days gone by and we enjoy the romantic Laubachtal. The rhododendron park impresses us with its blaze of colour.
Please note: The "Laubach-Celts Tour" is a combination of several trails, therefore it does not have its own marker!
At the end of the hike, relax in the rhododendron park!
