Germany Off The Beaten Path: 468 reviews and 716 photos
The Runkel Castle (in the village of Runkel near Limburg) is first mentioned in 1159 but probably even older. It is located on a Lahn riverbend, ideally suited to control all river traffic. A later addition of the 15th century is the historic Lahn bridge right beneath the castle. The view on bridge and castle from the opposite river bank is fantastic, as is the view on the Lahn river from the main castle tower. Though Runkel ist small and off the beaten path, you should not give it a miss. It can easily be combined in a Lahn daytrip with Limburg, Weilburg and Braunfels.
