Walking in Luther’s tracks - Treffurt-Mühlhausen section
The Luther Trail meanders through four Federal States, 900 kilometres thereof leading alone through Thuringia. Between Treffurt and Mühlhausen, nature enthusiasts will go into raptures.
For nature enthusiasts, the Luther Trail from Treffurt to Mühlhausen is an Eldorado. Already the starting point is fascinating, being situated directly at the Werra, surrounded by green hills and protecting the Normannstein Castle. Visitors walk through the Nature Park Eichsfeld-Hainich-Werratal to the old Zella Monastery and finally reach Mühlhausen with its picturesque little streets, many towers and churches. During this stage, Luther’s work is rather shown covertly. It’s worth to have a close look.
