Past castles and half-timbered towns: the Werratal is hardly to be surpassed in scenic diversity. Full of natural romanticism, healthy forests, proud castles, half-timbered towns full of friendly people, culture to the full. Beginning at the sources of the Werra in the Thuringian Forest - mainly in visual contact with the river and away from motorways - the tour goes from Eisfeld and Themar, directly through the theatre town Meiningen, past the Rhön with its many hills and charming Hessian half-timbered towns to the confluence of Werra and Fulda to the Weser.
The Werratal cycle track is a very popular bicycle tour, which we would like to recommend to you with conviction.
