    Absolute highlight in Runkel, once over the old bridge, belongs to a Runkel visit to me.

    A bridge with a moving history. The construction was started in 1440. It was damaged several times in the course of time, the bridge tower was demolished in 1815, in the course of the navigation of the Lahn later a lock was established.

    A beautiful view from the Schadecker side of the Lahn valley, the old bridge and the imposing castle Runkel.

    Historic bridge directly under the castle. Here are probably the most beautiful pictures and made.

    The lock in Runkel was completed in 1842. It is 34 meters long and 5.70 meters wide. Watching the locks is interesting!

    Very interesting, to see how the canoeists bring themselves through the lock: flood the lock before the entrance, drive into the lock and close behind him the lock gate, at the exit side the lock again empty and open the lock gate - all by hand !!!

    The Lahn is also a paradise for paddlers. There are also some locks here that you can operate yourself. It just an experience and really fun.

    The oldest bridge over the Lahn that has remained in its original state.
    What is just a little annoying that this bridge is also open to traffic, it is often very narrow, between cars, cyclists and pedestrians.

    I highly recommend visiting the castle. The tour can easily take an hour. Great photo opportunities.
    Open from April 1st

    I never made it to the lock with a draft of almost 100 cm. Scratching the Lahngrund with the screw once was expensive enough and was enough for me.
