Walking in Luther’s tracks - Mühlhausen-Bad Langensalza section

The Luther Trail meanders through four Federal States, 900 kilometres thereof leading alone through Thuringia. A unique combination of nature and culture awaits the pilgrim between Mühlhausen and Bad Langensalza.

From Mühlhausen with its many towers and medieval churches, the Trail leads out into nature, along the edge of the Hainich Park. Having passed Kammerforst, the hikers immerse in the central area of the National Park. Via the Craulaer Cross, the Trail leads to the Thiemsburg Castle with the canopy walkway and further to the spa town and city of roses Bad Langensalza. In this spa town with its ten parks and theme gardens, Luther visited the Augustinian Monastery in 1516.
