Follow in the footsteps of poets and thinkers along the Saale and Unstrut. On your bike tour you will discover many castles and palaces, after all there is more than 800 years of history in the area. For wine lovers, the numerous local winegrowers, such as the Rotkummel winery or the Dornburger Schlossberg, offer the opportunity for a tasting. Erfurt lures with the cathedral and the Kramer Bridge to some romantic corners in the old town.

Day 1: Arrival in Naumburg:

Arrival in the cathedral city on the Saale during the day to your hotel. Get in the mood for the coming days with a stroll through the alleys of the old town.  

Overnight stay in Naumburg.

Day 2: Wine and castles in the Unstrut valley: approx. 32 km

Today's destination is the wine-growing town of Freyburg an der Unstrut. You cross the Saale in the direction of Roßbach and then follow the cycle path along the Unstrut to Freyburg. Take the opportunity to visit the Red Riding Hood winery or a local winemaker (own arrangements). Leaving the valley, it is worth visiting Neuenburg Castle above Freyburg.

Day 3: To the Dornburg castles: approx. 32 km

The train takes you to Dornburg (Saale) in about 20 minutes (on your own).
Surrounded by vineyards, on a rocky plateau above the Saale, there are three castles in an imposing location. More than 800 years of history are united here. The Old Castle contains the remains of a medieval castle. The rococo palace is a gallant pleasure palace of the
18th century with porcelain collection. The Renaissance castle is closely linked to the poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. He raved about the lovingly tended palace gardens - they are a real treat for strollers and rose lovers. The wine from the Dornburger Schlossberg was as popular then as it is today. You cycle through the Saale valley back via Saaleck and Bad Kösen to Naumburg.

Overnight stay in Naumburg like the day before.
