The days are getting shorter, greens are changing to warm orange and red tones and, instead of a cold water bottle, a thermos flask goes into your hiking backpack. Time for new discoveries and time to visit museums, time-honoured castles and cultural institutions. It's a good thing we have plenty of them in Central Germany.

UNESCO World Heritage Sites, centuries-old buildings, modern museums: in the region of the Central German Transport Network (MDV), life – and above all culture – pulsates even in the cold season. With this Collection, we send you on an adventure of cultural discovery in the Leipzig district and beyond. The walks are between 11 and 19 kilometres (7–12 mi) long and begin and end at railway stations or bus stops before taking you to the cultural and natural highlights of the region.

Thanks to the great public transport connections, you can leave your car at home and enjoy the landscape undisturbed. Once you have arrived in Dessau, Wittenberg, Bad Dürrenberg or even Torgau, the hikes will take you to Bauhaus buildings, castles, over the Völkerschlacht area, through wonderful river meadows and through fragrant forests.

As you walk through these special places and old towns, you’ll find plenty of places to stop along the way and also accommodation if you want to spend the night at your destination. So, there’s nothing left to say – choose your first hike and enjoy a cultural Tour.
