Walk the Green Belt: Along a number of hiking and circular trails, the Green Belt can be discovered on foot and untouched nature enjoyed – in the southern Harz region, Eichsfeld, the Thuringian Rhön, Thuringian Forest or Thuringian Schiefergebirge Hills.

The Point Alpha Memorial offers a guided circular hike through the former border area in the Rhön region. It is about 10 kilometres in length.

Cycle the Green Belt: Taking the motto of “Borders divide – Nature unites”, there are 3 cross-state cycling trails in the area of the former Iron Curtain, ranging between 39 and 57 kilometres in length. Some of the routes along the Green Belt can easily be travelled by train with convenient cycle transportation.
