Wetzlar is a charming city in the district of Hesse, Germany. Unique features of the town are its unfinished cathedral, started back in the 9th century and a historic heart of half-timbered houses. Shoppers can enjoy exclusive boutiques and a lively Christmas market in the Schillerplatz. Take a pleasant walk along the River Lahn which intersects the city centre before driving out in your car rental from Wetzlar to explore the local countryside. The forest-covered Taunus mountain region is a short distance away, where you can visit the Saalburg, a restored Roman castle or take therapeutic treatments at Bad Ems, a popular spa town. The cities of Koblenz and Frankfurt am Main with their interesting mix of modern and medieval architecture are both close enough for a day out from Wetzlar, the perfect way to enjoy your open-top convertible.
