    Limburg an der Lahn is a city full of history - its beginnings go back to the early Middle Ages: "Lintpurc" was first mentioned in a document in 910. Shortly after the document was issued by the then King Ludwig, the child began building the collegiate church started, today's Limburg Cathedral.
    With the foundation of the abbey, Limburg became increasingly important and brought about prosperity and prestige thanks to the lively freight transport that was prevalent on the Via Publica high road at the time.
    If you stroll through the medieval old town today, admire the old squares and trimmed half-timbered houses, walk over the Old Lahn Bridge built in 1315 and look up to the St. George's Cathedral, which towers over the city on a hill, then Limburg unfolds all its medieval charm.
    Because of its excellently preserved cityscape and the associated medieval city wall, the entire city center has been listed. This makes Limburg an der Lahn one of the most beautiful cities in Hesse today.

    The heart of the Roach is the fountain of the robber baron Friedrich von Hattstein. In 1353 he conquered the Eichelbacher Schloss (today's Eichelbacher Hof and also worth a trip) near Weilrod-Hasselbach - he took Siegfried von Reinberg by surprise at his wedding party - and kept it occupied for four years. The Hattsteiner threatened and plundered travelers and merchants on the once busy section of the Rennstraße between Bad Camberg, Hasselbach and Rod an der Weil. A chronicle states that “the road” was soon “quiet and deserted”, “so that the grass grew like a good meadow”. Likewise, the farmers in the surrounding villages were not spared. It was not until 1357 that Siegfried von Reinberg managed to recapture his property. Friedrich von Hattstein left his domicile at the Eichelbacher Hof for a visit to Limburg. Scouts reported to Siegfried von Rheinberg about this trip, so that he seized the opportunity to attack the Eichelbacher Hof with some allied knights and bring it back under his rule. Friedrich von Hattstein's way was cut off, and there was nothing else left than to become city governor in the strong commercial Limburg. The former free knight accepted a civil office for 32 guilders a year and became city governor of Limburg. The former robber baron is said to have secured the merchants' wagons from thieves in Limburg. According to legend, he could lift a full wine barrel and drink from the bunghole.

    Unfortunately, Limburg gained by the (justified) media scolding regarding the extravagant financing madness to the Limburg Cathedral or the episcopal see sad notoriety. But a visit is worthwhile.

    When you drive through Limburg and see the Limburg Cathedral, you first think of the story of Bishop Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst, who lived here in his splendid dwelling 🤨
