One of the most beautiful places in the university town is certainly the banks of the Lahn in Marburg. Here you can stroll along and enjoy the view of the old town, the river rushing by and the boats. You can also go on board here and get to know a completely different perspective of Marburg’s old town on a round trip on the Lahn. A highlight every year is definitely the Marburg Harbour Festival, which takes place on the banks of the Lahn. During this public festival, which lasts several days, there are numerous rides, stalls and stages with live music directly on the riverbank and around the Elisabeth-Blochmann-Platz. So it’s no wonder that the harbour festival regularly attracts numerous visitors.
