1) from Bad Camburg (on the A3 Fankfurt-Köln)....
Drive into Bad Camburg, over tracks and on to a T-intersection with a stoplight. Turn right. As you leave the town (1.5k) turn left - direction Usingen. Follow this road several km until you come to another T-junction with highway 275 (at a small place called Tenne) where you turn left - direction Usingen.
Drive through Riedelbach. After about 4 more km there are several curves in the road and a town (Neuweilnau) on your left. As you pass, you may see the ruins of a castle tower ahead. Soon you will pass the town and after a sharp bend to the right, always on the same road, you will then turn to the left, up the hill, direction Altweilnau. (You pass a first left turn-off here, back down into Neuweilnau.) Up the hill, after driving by the old tower and a bend to the right, you want to take a left turn (following the 'through traffic' indication) - direction Oberlauken. Drive through Oberlauken to Niederlauken and there - about 70m after the road bends to the right and - you have your first sign for Gemünden, a left turn.
As (having driven about 2 km) you enter the edge of Gemünden, there will be a lumber yard (SORG). Over your left shoulder (a sharp turn-around) is the Goldhecker Weg (landmark - an electrical service hut). Drive up the hill passing a couple of houses (right side) then about 300m and you come to the Bibelfreizeitheim.
2) from the other direction.... Usingen (A5 Frankfurt-Giessen)
Exit the A5 at "Ober-Mörlen" (no.14) and follow 275 through Usingen. After leaving Usingen, follow signs for Niederlauken (right at first and/or second turnoffs, in case of second, direction Hundstadt - Laubach....) and then refer to the above information
(Note – from Frankfurt, you can also take the 456 into Usingen from Oberursel-Nord.)
3) or come to the Usingen train station and we will arrange to pick you up.
(Try to pre-arrange, so we don't make extra trips. About 15 min each way.)
Or, if you're really adventurous, there is also a bus connection from Usingen to Gemünden.
