    Zwischen Bockstadt und Hildburghausen

    Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)

    Here, the Werratalweg meanders slightly up the forest edge south of Werra and along the railway line with fantastic views of the valley. Just nice to cycle.

    Nördliche (obere) Werraquelle

    Bike Touring Highlight

    Not a must, but who wants to drive the Werratal cycle path completely, should have stopped by both Werraquellen. By the way: the "upper" Werra spring is located three meters below the "lower" Werra spring.

    No need, because there is not much to see here. But who wants to drive the Werra bike path completely, should have passed by both Werraquellen for safety's sake.

    Impressive half-timbered facades and 700 half-timbered houses from six different centuries. Hann. Münden is known as the "Three Rivers City" and was already praised by Alexander von Humboldt as "one of the seven most beautiful cities in the world". Today the medieval old town counts as a half-timbered town of European rank and distinguishes itself by its beautiful lanes and imposing half-timbered buildings. In summer, guests can visit the Doctor Eisenbarth Theater. The story is told by dr. Eisenbart - one of the most famous walk doctors of the Baroque era. Distance to the bike path: about 600 meters, accessible at all times.

    Weserstein

    Bike Touring Highlight

    The Weserstein stands under a tree on the bank, where Fulda and Werra flow together. He has the following inscription:

    Where Werra and Fulda kiss
    You have to pay for her name.
    And here arises through this kiss
    German to the sea of the Weser river.
    Hann. Münden d. July 31, 1899

    A beautiful poem that you can think about as you sit down on the bench under the big tree and watch the two rivers kiss and become the Weser.
