Bike Touring Highlight
The Cölber Eck is a special landscape.
Not only do so diverse rivers like Lahn, Wetschaft, Ohm and Red Water come together, but also four completely different natural areas: the upper Lahn Valley, the Marburg Lahn Valley, the Burgwald and the Amöneburg Basin. But even in the distant past, when our landscape was still in the making, the Cölber Eck had a special meaning. Here the Lahn did not initially bend to the south as we know it today, but continued to flow northeast, around Kirchhain and then together with the prehistoric Ohm through the Ebsdorfer Grund. That was about 5 million years ago. Only later did the Lahn find its way south with a breakthrough on Eibenhardt, the Ohm followed.
