Qualitätsweg Wanderbares Deutschland


This Thuringian hiking trail is quality-tested!

Hanstein Fortress is one of the most attractive fortresses in Central Germany and is located directly by the "Green Ribbon" in the Eichsfeld-Hainich-Werra Valley Nature Reserve in the triangle of Thuringia, Lower Saxony and Hesse.
The route from Bornhagen below Hanstein Fortress via the "Green Ribbon" to Lindewerrablick is fascinating in every season of the year. From Lindewerrablick, you have a wonderful view of the Werra Valley and to the Hohe Meissner Mountain. Come and experience untouched nature along the former border between the two Germanies.
