The Leine-Werra-Weg has been awarded as a quality trail by the German Hiking Association. Rightly so.

On the 98 kilometre stretch from Heiligenstadt to Creuzburg, challenging climbs alternate with gentle valley sections. It leads through an almost untouched nature with wild rockfalls and untouched river landscapes.

Divided into five daily stages, this hiking trail invites you to take a week off in the Eichsfeld-Hainich-Werratal Nature Park. On natural paths you will discover a unique nature as well as many half-timbered villages, castles and pilgrimage chapels. And in the breaks you can enjoy the delicacies of the region, which is famous for its traditional sausage processing, fruit juices and Eichsfeld Schmandkuchen. 

Tip: If you don't want to walk the entire route, you can take a ride on a trolley: first on an old viaduct at a height of 24 metres across the village of Lengenfeld and then into the fairytale landscape of Südeichsfeld.
