Worth seeing is the St. Kastor Church, whose Romanesque tower was built around 1179, the early Gothic three-aisled Staffel-Emporen-Hallenkirche was built in the 2nd decade of the 14th century. In the church there are murals from the 14th and 16th centuries, which were reconstructed in 1902, and a winged altar from the period around 1500 with figures of the patrons and panel paintings from the life of Mary. During restoration and renovation work, various graves were found in the church in the early 1990s. In addition to various pieces of jewelry and the fragment of a scallop shell was found. On the church memory there are indications of a pilgrim hostel.The medieval ring wall is still largely preserved. Of the towers of the city fortifications are still the gate tower and the leaning tower, the latter tended in the 19th and 20th centuries and was canceled in 1950 by about 7.50 m. Stumps of 5 other towers are preserved. Right next to the gate tower is the 1100-year-old court oak with a breast height of 8.10 m (2014). The "Old Town Hall" built in late Gothic style in 1434 is considered the second oldest half-timbered town hall in Germany.A half-timbered house from 1650 houses Dausenau's historically preserved tavern on the river Lahn.Source: Wikipedia
