September 12, 2018
With only a little more than eight kilometers, the eleventh stage is the shortest hike on the Rheinsteig. Today you can take it easy. After a short section along the Lahn, you will hike over the Mehrsberg back to the Rhine Valley.From Niederlahnstein you walk along the river Lahn upstream for a while until the Rheinsteig rises on the slopes of the valley towards Mehrsberg. Arrived at the highest point, you will be spoiled with a great view of the picturesque Lahn Valley.Afterwards you cycle through the spa town Lahnstein, where you can also find an inn for a rest. You leave the tiny place behind you and walk downhill through the forest.The descent is followed by the last ascent of the day. After a meadow section, a stretch awaits you via a rock path insured with wire ropes. As you scramble along, you can already cast your first glimpse of the Rhine.At the end of the Felsenweg you can take a break at the Rest and Grill Hut Braubach and enjoy the Rhine Valley panorama with the Marksburg Castle. With fresh energy you finally lay the short piece back to the stage destination Braubach.
