Laubach is an idyllic village situated above the Werra River on the edge of the Kaufunger Forest.
The Kaufunger Forest with its wonderful hiking trails - especially in the Grundbach and Glasebach valleys - characterises the area surrounding the village.
A technical masterpiece
The 59-metre-high motorway bridge (A7) that spans the Werra valley near Laubach was once admired as a technical masterstroke, but is now regarded more as a "functional building for motor traffic". In 1962, Heinz Hartung created the Laubach coat of arms, which for the first time in German heraldry features a motorway bridge. Since 1989, the ICE railway line has run parallel to the motorway bridge. The portal to Germany's second-longest railway tunnel (10.5 km) is located in the Laubach district.
Village community life is very important in Laubach. Since 1999, the "Laubacher Trommelstock" has regularly reported on the active club life and cultural activities in the village.
