Industrial culture meets picturesque nature

Lollar is the only part of the Gießener Lahntäler that can call three valleys its home. Not only the Lumda but also the Salzböde flow into the Lahn here. The town of Lollar looks back on a long heritage of industrial culture, which has shaped the architecture of the core town in a unique way. You will find a neo-Gothic industrial chateaux, pretty Art Nouveau houses, one of the largest and oldest workers’ housing estates in Hesse and a castle built in the English style, in which Rainer Maria Rilke was guest for an entire summer. And it is not only the architecture that characterizes Lollar as an manifold place. The town has a long tradition of guest workers, which is why Lollar can present itself today as a multi-cultural town with great social commitment. Those who want to relax from the noise of the pulsating little town will find tranquility and deceleration, for example, on the Lahn hiking trail. The 08th stage leads from Lollar to Frohnhausen, is perfectly accessible by public transport and can thus give a short break from your everyday life. The Salzbödetal in the north offers particularly idyllic nature. In the midst of the river valley and in an extraordinary setting, hikers, cyclists and gourmets will find first-class gastronomy, such as the Schönemühle confectionery & café or the Schmelzmühle restaurant.
