Marking along the Lahnhöhenweg

The Lahnhöhenweg is a 295 km long main hiking route of the Sauerland Mountain Association , which only looks after the first 34 km, and the Upper Hessian Mountain Association from the source of the Lahn to the confluence of the Lahn into the Rhine near Lahnstein. The Lahnhöhenweg is marked with the letter L as a signpost .

The path leads from the source of the Lahn near Netphen via Dautphetal and Marburg , where it runs together with the Lahn-Dill-Bergland-Path . From Wetzlar there are two routes down the Lahn. The northern route runs in sections through the Westerwald and is marked with a white L on a black background. The southern route runs in sections through the Taunus and is marked with a black L on a white background. The Rhine is finally reached at Lahneck Castle in Lahnstein . There the Lahnhöhenweg crosses the Rheinhöhenweg and the Rheinsteig .

On the lower reaches of the Lahn, the Lahnhöhenweg on the left is in a slightly shortened version from Marburg, also known as the Jakobsweg . The so-called Lahn-Camino is shown from Wetzlar as the Jakobsweg down the Lahn , it has only recently been made accessible as a pilgrimage route and is signposted accordingly from Wetzlar.

Between the source of the Lahn and Niederlahnstein (mouth of the Lahn), the Lahnwanderweg has been created from parts of the two Lahn height trails .
