Unstrut-Werra Cycle Path
From the medieval Free City into the midst of nature
If you do not want to decide in favour of a city trip nor of sport holidays or pure nature, the Unstrut-Werra Cycle Path is a good choice. Between primeval forests and romantic towns, a fascinating trip waits for you.
Over a length of 113 kilometres, this supra-regional cycle path connects Unstrut and Werra. From Artern to Wendehausen, you can experience culture and nature by bike. For example in the middle of Mühlhausen, between mighty churches and evidences of the Hanseatic period. Furthermore, the Path takes you along the geographic centre of Germany in Niederdorla with its ancient Germanic settlement and the village of Langula offers a convenient side trip into the primeval forest of the Hainich National Park. And finally, romantic half-timbered facades and the Normannstein Castle fascinate the visitors shortly before the end of the Path in the town of Treffurt with its half-timbered houses.
