Arrival in Marburg
If you would like to get to know Marburg right away on the day of arrival as part of a guided city tour (Saturdays, subject to change), you should plan your arrival so that you are already ready to start your first discoveries at 3:00 pm. An experienced city guide will show you the famous Elisabeth Church, Marburg's Landgrave's Palace and, of course, the Old Town, which is well worth seeing. This will give you the best possible overview and certainly your first insider tips for your holiday week.
Cycle along varied cycle paths, forest tracks and farm tracks to the "Dammühle", one of the most beautiful places to visit in the Marburg hinterland. Be inspired by this historic, listed water mill, which has been in the family for more than 300 years. Take a seat in the idyllic beer garden or play a game of mini-golf before you start your way back. Unfortunately, it starts with a short climb (approx. 500 m long), but then it's a wonderful ride back to the old university town of Marburg.
Look forward to your first cycling stage and to the more than 700-year-old Brücker Mühle. The historic mill, true to the original, is still running today. Follow the production process from grain to flour with excitement. Afterwards, the café in the idyllic mill courtyard or a place on the green sofa in the old pump room will tempt you. Freshly invigorated, you can master the climb up to the historic excursion town of Amöneburg. You will be rewarded with a unique panoramic view, a wonderful circular wall path and finally a thrilling descent. You then cycle quickly back to Marburg on completely flat cycle paths.
In the morning, take a fun tour on a pedal boat on the Lahn and enjoy Marburg from the water. After these water adventures, take a walk in the woods up to the Spiegelslustturm, the most beautiful viewing terrace over Marburg. Enjoy the magnificent panoramic view over the city and the countryside from the tower and let yourself be spoilt with coffee and cake in the tower café. It's nice that you still have plenty of time today for a stroll through Marburg's old town or to enjoy the amenities of your elegant hotel.
A real highlight awaits you today. In good spirits, you cycle along a former railway line towards your rewarding destination, Rauischholzhausen Castle and Park. Marvel at the spacious castle park. The approximately 30-hectare English landscape park is home to almost 300 different tree species. It has been a protected landscape since 1956 and was even included in the European Garden Heritage Network's European Theme Route in 2009. Admire the little castle, treat yourself in the nice café and let yourself drift by bike through the vast castle park before cycling back to Marburg along the beautiful railway line.
