The 'Bäderstrasse' from Wiesbaden to Koblenz dates back to Franconian times. And Nassau Castle, which was built in the 12th century, was there to protect it. Its lords, the Counts of Nassau, were among the most powerful noble families of the Middle Ages. Some of their descendants are now part of the Dutch royal family and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. While the castle was never destroyed, it was abandoned and increasingly fell into disrepair after a good 300 years. So why is it still worth the climb? Many parts of the building, including the castle keep with its characteristic spires, have been extensively rebuilt and restored since the 1970s. And also because the view down to the Lahn valley is simply breathtaking!
