National Park Hiking Trail
Sulzrieden means “salty marsh‘‘. This name stems from a former Slavic settlement which was confirmed by archaeological grave findings. Already in the 16th century, Sulzrieden was described as desolate in fief letters.
The trail with a length of 6.5 km is well-developed and can be discovered by foot in a good 3 hours. On the way, you will find botanical specialities and geological information. Particularly in spring, there are many different early bloomers along the path that can be marvelled at. The Owl, the symbol of this hiking trail, represents the owls living in the Hainich Park. At twilight, the hoarse call of the tawny owl can often be heard here.
