Itinerary at a glance
Those who would like to get to know Marburg on the arrival day as part of a guided tour (Saturdays, subject to change) should plan their arrival in such a way that you are ready to start your first discoveries by 3pm. An experienced city guide will show you the famous Elisabeth church, the Marburg Landgrave Palace, and of course the historic centre, which is well worth seeing. That way you will receive an optimal overview and certainly some initial insider tips for your holiday week.
Via a variety of cycle-, forest- and farm paths you cycle to the „Dammühle“-mill, one of the most stunning excursion spots in the Marburg hinterland. Be inspired by this historic, lised water mill, which has been family-owned for more than 300 years. Take a seat in the idyllic beer garden or play a small round of minigolf before you start your return journey. Unfortunately, it kicks off with a short ascent (approx. 500 metres in length), but then you peddle easily 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 embark on a fun pedal boat tour on the river Lahn and enjoy Marburg from the water. After these experiences on the water, a walk in the forest beckons ascending to the ‚Spiegelslustturm‘, Marburg’s most fabulous viewing terrace. From the viewing tower enjoy the 360-degree view over the city and countryside and pamper yourself with coffee and cake in the tower café. It is great, that you still have plenty of time left today for a stroll through Marburg’s historic centre or enjoy the facilities of your elegant hotel.
A true highlight awaits you today. Blissfully happy you cycle on a former railway line towards your lovely Day Finish Rauischholzhausen Palace and Gardens. Marvel at the spacious palace grounds. The approximately 30-hectare landscaped English park is home to almost 300 different tree species. It has been under landscape protection since 1956 and was even included in the European themed route of the ‚European Garden Heritage Network’ in 2009. Admire the small palace, spoil yourself in the nice café and let yourself be carried away by bike through the wide palace gardens before you cycle back to Marburg via the beautiful former railway line.
The bike routes are mostly flat with only a few climbs.
