Oberlahnstein - Inn on the River Lahn - Bäderstraße B260 - Footbridge over the Lahn - Ernst-Wagner Park - Im Einmuth - Kerkertser Platte plateau - Braubach
Some stories, like that of Idilia Dubb, get under your skin. In 1851, the young Scottish girl climbed the tower of Lahneck Castle all alone, which was a ruin at that time. As she reached the top of the tower, the rotten steps collapsed behind her. Her cries for help went unheard and became gradually weaker, until the poor pretty young Scot finally died of thirst. Many years later, her diary was found in a niche in the castle walls.
Braubach hat einen schnuckeligen, historischen Ortskern mit Einkehrmöglichkeiten am Marktplatz.

Safety informationHealth and safety
- Wear suitable weatherproof clothing that will protect you from cold, wet, heat and sunshine.
- Make sure you take regular breaks and don't overexert yourself.
- Take enough fluids with you as there are sections without rest stops.
- Wear suitable hiking boots/shoes which give you enough grip on slippery, steep, rocky and uneven surfaces.
- Avoid any sections of the route which you feel are too difficult for you. Natural trails can quickly become wet and slippery in adverse weather conditions.
- Particularly in autumn, you should be careful of uneven ground, roots, stones or holes that have been covered by leaves.
- You need to take these kinds of adverse conditions into account every time you go on a hike.
- Particularly steep and dangerous places are made safer with handrails or ropes. Please use these as safety aids. Handrails are not to be climbed on or used to get a better view!
