Schiffstunnel Weilburg

Weilburg · Lahntal

The Weilburg Maritime Tunnel is the oldest and longest ship tunnel in Germany that can still be used today. It crosses the Mühlberg, on which the town of Weilburg is located, from north to south over a length of 195 metres, thus avoiding a roughly two kilometre long arch of the Lahn with two weirs. The tunnel was built between 1844 and 1847 and today forms the so-called Weilburg Tunnel Ensemble together with the parallel road and railway tunnels.
