Weilburg is a town almost entirely encircled by the Lahn river and is famous for its 16th century castle and former residence of the dukes of Nassau-Weilburg and later the grand dukes of Luxembourg.

There are many things you can do here. We suggest to explore its famous Castle Weilburg first. This was built in the 14th century and later was extensively rebuilt in the 16th and 18th century. The core of the castle is counted to one of the best preserved Renaissance style castles in Hesse.

Other things of interest:
  • Equally interesting is the protestant Schlosskirche from the early 18th century
  • All over Weilburg, you can look at the half timbered houses from the 16th - 19th centuries located within Weilburg's historic old-town
  • The Neptunbrunnen (Well of Neptune) form 1709.
  • The Kalvarienberg and the chapel on the old graveyard.
  • One unique thing to look for in Weilburg is the Weilburger Tunnel that separates cars, trains and boats in three adjacent tunnels.
