Wetzlar is a city in the Hesse region, in the heart of Germany, located about sixty miles north of Frankfurt. Set in the valley of the River Lahn, this is a beautiful small town of 50 000 inhabitants surrounded by low mountains and forests. The city has preserved many old buildings built in different styles: Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque.
