A Day in Limberg an der Lahn, Germany — Going Medieval on Foot

Limburg an der Lahn, Germany

We’re now down with the Vision of the Seas, and we’re moving on. This trip, which began in May 2022, lasted until early July, which gives you an idea of how much we did. We started aboard Vision of the Seas for a transatlantic crossing, then stayed aboard Vision for a Mediterranean follow-on to some seldom-seen ports in Spain and France. In late May we disembarked and flew off to Germany, where we visited out eldest daughter. Here, our daughter took us on a little sightseeing to the medieval town of Limburg an der Lahn (Limburg on the Lahn), the district seat of Limburg-Weilburg in the State of Hessen (Hesse). So, over the next three weeks, I’m going to treat you to the sights of this charming little city. The first two weeks will end with Fun Photo Fridays, and the third will be schnitzel on a Fun Food Friday.

Limburg, as you may have guessed by now, lies along the river Lahn, a tributary of the Rhine. Hence the name: Limburg an der Lahn. When you come for your visit, make sure you have spare camera batteries and plenty of memory cards. You’ll need it. We parked our car in the garage at the east end of Sackgasse, next to the Woolworth’s, and set out eastbound on foot. It was only a matter of yards/meters before we got our first glimpse of the old town portion of Limburg.

From here we just started wandering the narrow pedestrian streets as we slowly made our way to the Dom zu Limburg (Limburg Cathedral). That’s where I’ll end today, leaving you with this taste of Limburg:

Слава Україні! (Slava Ukraini!)
