First it goes by train after casting. Lahnaufwärts we reach the Salzböde, a small tributary of idyllic meadows and forest cuts, a whole series of mills and picturesque villages. On the way we are reminded the post robbers of this Marburg "hinterland".
On May 19, 1822 eight poor farmers and day laborers from Kombach, Wolf pits and Dexbach raided a "Geldkärrnchen" that drove that day of Gladenbach after casting.

From the Burg Vetzberg, there are still the 22 m high keep, the gable wall of the Palas, parts of the curtain walls and the lower Castle. A fine restaurant and an observation deck that offers a wide view of the Gießen basin and into the Lahn-Dill-Bergland, the Vogelsberg, the Westerwald and the Taunus hosts the Castle Gleiberg.
