Cycling holiday in Hesse

Anything but a typical holiday location


Reconnoitre Marburg’s historic old town by Segway, paddle along the Lahn by canoe or kayak, discover palaces and castles in the beautiful countryside surrounding Marburg and climb the hiking trails of the Lahn Valley with an alpaca: You certainly won’t be bored during your active holiday in Marburg. Many destinations are worth your time. For example, you can hike up the 100 metres of elevation difference from our VILA VITA Rosenpark hotel to the castle by foot. Rarely will you enjoy refreshments as much as you will after your climb: The well known restaurant Bückingsgarten located at the castle has a beer garden and a fabulous view of the entire city in store for you. Or treat yourself to a scoop of ice cream from AROMA Bistro & Eisbar, one of the best ice cream makers in Germany, after a long day of hiking. You can enjoy it with your feet in the sand right on Marburg’s only city beach.
