Giessen: Boat Tour on the River Lahn and Guided Tour of the City

Lahnlust Gießen

A short bus drive will bring you to the starting point of the boat tour on the river Lahn. The Lahn is an important tributory of the Rhine and is flowing for the most part through Hesse connecting the two university cities Marburg and Giessen on its way. On the boat beverages will be served, and a tour guide will provide you more details on the river. Back at the landing stage, which is close to the city center, you will embark on a short walk (approx. 1,5 km) through the history of Giessen where Justus von Liebig founded the world's first major school of chemistry and became patron of the university, and where Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen, physics nobel prize winner in 1901 “in recognition of the extraordinary services he has rendered by the discovery of the remarkable rays subsequently named after him”, is buried on the old cemetry. At the end of the city tour you will be picked up by the bus(es) returning from Marburg at around 17:30.

A 30 minutes bus drive will take you to the St. Elisabeth´s Church in Marburg, the oldest pure gothic cathedral in Germany. On the other side of the road passing the church you will find the bust of the winner of the first "Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine“ Emil von Behring “for his work on serum therapy, especially its application against diphtheria, by which he has opened a new road in the domain of medical science and thereby placed in the hands of the physician a victorious weapon against illness and deaths”. During a discovery tour up the hill to Marburg Castle you will learn almost everything about the life of this world famous scientist, how he could save the life of thousands of children and why a bronce horse is greeting the visitors on their way to the main building of the former „Behringwerke“. Having reached the castle you are free to stroll down through medieval Marburg to the St. Elisabeth´s Church where the bus(es) will depart at 17:00 to bring you back to Giessen.
