Photography Tips

If you want to include the stream of the water within your photo, especially polarizers are highly recommended, because they are making a huge difference here. Being able to see the stones beyond the surface is definitely a nice detail, but more importantly you are reducing the bright reflections in the water, which are grabbing quite a lot of attention you usually want to have on the castle instead.

Travel Information

The town is linked to the long-distance road network through the Limburg-Süd interchange on the A 3 (Cologne–Frankfurt), 7 km away. They have a huge parking area near the Camping Place.

Runkel has a railway station on the Lahn Valley Railway (Koblenz-Limburg-Runkel-Wetzlar-Gießen) at which only regional trains stop.
