Weilburg is the perfect starting point for bike tours - both for athletic mountain bikers and for unhurried pleasure bikers.
As an easy day trip we recommend the tour from Weilburg to Limburg (approx. 34 km along the Lahn). You definitely should plan a visit of the "Limburger Dom" (cathedral) and Limburg's old town. For your way back you can comfortably take the train.
The tour Weilburg-Limburg is part of the Hessischer Radfernweg R7 (Hessian cycle path), which leads from Limburg to the river Werra with a length of 215 km.
The Lahn-Radweg (Lahn cycle path) which escorts the Lahn over 235 km from its well at Lahnhof in the Rothaargebirge to its mouth into the Rhine at Lahnstein, leads past Weilburg.
Here you can find further informationen about Cycling in the Lahn valley and the Lahn-Radweg.
