Yellow Route

Gele Route

37 easy kilometres through the Hainich National Park Hainich

From Creuzburg to Bad Langensalza, directly through the Hainich National Park, the Yellow Route leads the cyclists over usually little frequented side roads and agricultural roads.

In Creuzburg, at the historic Werra Bridge with the Liborius Chapel, the cycle path starts and is directly connected with the Werratal Cycle Path. A lot of plants line the wayside, and especially friends of orchids will be delighted. There are only moderate slopes on the 37 km long route. It leads past the Craulaer Cross. There, you can get information about the National Park and the regional memorial before crossing the “Red Route”. Via the Castle “Thiemsburg” and the UNESCO World Heritage site, the Hainich National Park, the route continues to Bad Langensalza.
