On this tour we will show you the idyllic Nassau nature park south of Montabaur. It goes to the little known chaffinch region and the Gelbachtal. It starts at the confluence of the Gelbach and Ahrbach rivers, a few minutes by bike from Montabaur.You drive through the beautiful Gelbachtal, which is known for its particularly quiet nature due to its sparse population. It is also one of the most beautiful side valleys of the Lahn. You can see - or not - one reason why so few people live here in Sespenroth: The place disappeared along with its residents and buildings at Easter 1853. The residents have emigrated to America and the empty buildings have been dismantled.After you have left the valley, it goes uphill for a few kilometers. Here you can train your stamina and enjoy the nature surrounding you in peace while you crank up to the chaffinch land. The area is so named because the chaffinches clearly feel at home in this extensive mixed forest. Some also claim that the forest was named that way because in the 19th century the bakers from the villages wandered to Montabaur singing and whistling in the morning.
