Emser Therme

Die Emser Therme bietet auf 6.600 m² ThermenLandschaft, SaunaPark, WellnessGalerie und dem Restaurant Halberts Entspannung auf höchstem Niveau. Deutschlands erste FlussSauna, das Sidroga Kräuterdampfbad und die Emser Salzinhalation sind nur einige Highlights.

Reviewed By LarruZ

The Emser Therme has been completely renovated. Nice contemporary style with modern interior.
The people were very friendly and helpful. Personally I am not a fan of a swimming pool combined with a sauna, but in this case they were nearly separated and in the sauna one could not hear anyone from the pool. Very good!
Everything at the sauna-side was new and clean, although the restaurant was more like a little bar, situated in a big open resting area.
Furthermore, I've experienced 3 Aufguss, which were performed by the staff. Very professional and nicely done!
I am definitely going back here when I am around.

We took the cable car up to the fortress on a rainy day, and found it safe, comfortable, inexpensive, and very well run, with continuous service. Bring ID if wanting the senior discount. The views from the top are sensational, and the small restaurant nearby a nice convenience. Best of all, however, was the stonework and grounds of the fortress-very nice!

Marksburg Castle

Reviewed By Joe Q - Virginia Beach, Virginia

This 13th century castle has been meticulously maintained in it's original condition to maintain it's historical accuracy. The castle is an engineering marvel and a defensive masterpiece sitting on a mountain top with clear views of the Rhine River and it's approaches. The views from the ramparts is spectacular. The military paraphernalia throughout the castle is authentic and for a history buff wonderful to look at. The down side to all this authenticity is that if you are mobility challenged or walking is difficult, this is not a tour for you. The cobblestone walkway up to the castle is steep and if wet very slippery. The steps into the castle are the original hewed stone steps carved out of the Mountains rock and over the centuries these stairs have become jagged, pitted, slippery and unwieldy for a person with shaky mobility. But if you want to venture the walk...this is a must see on any visit to the Black Forest Region of Germany.

Burg Nassau

Reviewed By Dave R - Cambridge, United Kingdom

On a very hot day the climb through the woods seemed never ending but the view was good and the cafe was open. Large chunks of the castle are roped off for renovation so there is only the keep to see. There are no English info boards so its really a case of climb the tower use the cafe and toilet and stagger back down the path!

Burg Lahneck

Reviewed By Linda C - Fort Myers Beach, Florida

We took a day excursion from the Upper Rhine around Remagen to visit Marksburg Castle. Right after we left Koblenz and before we got to Marksburg we saw a ruined, Gothic castle up on the hill. We learned that it was Lahneck Castle. I could imagine Sleeping Beauty asleep in the tower. I could also picture Prince Charming with a sword in hand climbing up the mountainside, hacking away at all that greenery. We didn't get very close but it will always remain in our minds a romantic vision on the Rhine Road.

Kurwaldbahn

Reviewed By 416Traveller2013 - Toronto, Canada

It is fully automated, easy to manage even if you don't speak/read German. It goes fairly frequently, so never a long wait. When you get to the top, there are hiking trails, a fabulour view of the Lahn valley in both directions, and a lovely Terrace with a restaurant (the view is better than the restaurant, but the latter is still quite acceptable and not expensive, considering the location).

Wehrtechnische Studiensammlung

Reviewed By Henkuz - Alkmaar, The Netherlands

This is not a museum, it is a collection of the German army that is still in use for instruction and study, keep your passport ready at the entrance.
Biggest collection of various types of weapons ever seen, allow yourself enough time to visit this place because there is so much to see.
Bring your own snacks and drink, no cafeteria in the building.

Romerquelle

Reviewed By Joop V - Ede, The Netherlands

Uit deze bron mag je gratis water drinken. Je daalt de trap af naar beneden en drinkt uit de kranen. Velen doen dat met hun handen, maar er hangen gewoon plastic bekertjes aan de wand. Men zegt dat dit warme water geneeskrachtig is, maar door de complexe samenstelling (er hangt een analyse aan de wand) is het verstandig er niet te veel te drinken, de maag is dit niet gewent.
