    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.

    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 !!!

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

    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.
