Ground broken for third phase of construction at the Leitz Park Wetzlar


Welcome to Hesse

The historic town of Wetzlar, at the heart of the state of Hesse, is just a 40-minute drive from Frankfurt. Explore the medieval centre and visit the Wetzlarer Dom cathedral and view the river from the 700-year old Lahn bridge. Numerous hotels and guest houses can be found quite close to the centre. There is also plenty to discover around town, for instance Schloss Braunfels, a fairy-tale castle in a spectacular setting. Or plan a walking tour through the Lahn-Dill region, famous for its landscapes and rich wooded countryside. If big cities are more your style, a trip to Frankfurt is just the ticket. Situated around 70 kilometres from Wetzlar, the metropolis on the river Main is a permanent invitation to take a trip and enjoy some of its enormous range of cultural activities.
