A great walk with great views

The SaaleHorizontale walking trail offers 72 kilometres of pure hiking pleasure. It winds its way along narrow paths, through steep fossil-flecked limestone cliffs, offering spectacular vistas across the delightful scenery of the Middle Saale valley. Lush meadows alternate with verdant beech forests. Open groves of pine trees and the many clear valley slopes provide regular glimpses of small villages, castles and palaces, and of the distinguished university city of Jena. (Map View)
