Limburg an der Lahn is the district seat of Limburg-Weilburg in Hesse, Germany.
Limburg lies in western Hesse between the Taunus and the Westerwald on the river Lahn.
Only a few towns, like Limburg, have been able to keep a full set of nearly unscathed mediaeval buildings.
The Altstadt (“Old Town”) boasts a fine cathedral and is full of narrow streets with timber-frame houses, dating mainly from the 17th and 18th centuries. That’s why it is located on the German Framework Road.
