Best Hikes to Dietzenröder Stein
  • Thomas 🚴‍♂️

    Once there, you can enjoy one of the most exclusive views in Eichsfeld. In the valley you can see the small but very pretty place Dietzenrode and on the left in the background is Bad Sooden Allendorf. The climb to almost 500m is definitely worth it. For this you drive to the trail parking lot in front of Asbach and stick to the signs a 1 in the yellow circle. The trail is, depending on how many detours you make, between 4 and 7km long. In about two hours you are including breakfast on the benches, here at Dietzenröder stone, through. This hike is sure to be remembered for a while.

  • The Dietzenröder stone is the southwesternmost and highest elevation (just under 500 meters) of the small mountain plateau "Auf dem Stein". At the western edge of the break, there is a rock wall made of shell limestone, the so-called Dietzenröder cliffs. On the benches you can rest and enjoy the great view into the Walse- and Werratal as well as the adjoining mountain country.

  • The rocky massif of the Dietzenröder Stein, visible from afar - 496 m above sea level. NN -
    was at the time of the deposition of the shell limestone, before 235 - 243
    million years, from a tropical to subtropical marginal
    sea covered. There were only narrow connections to the world
    sea. (from information board)

  • Narrow forest paths sometimes small stairs, mega views from above. But also steep in some places.

  • The mountain is located in the western part of the Eichsfeld district near the state border with Hesse. Viewed clockwise, it lies between the small towns of Asbach-Sickenberg in the south and south-west, Dietzenrode-Vatterode in the west and north-west, Mackenrode and Henningerode in the north-east. The nearest cities are Bad Sooden-Allendorf (Hessen) (4 kilometers to the south-west) and Heilbad Heiligenstadt (Thuringia) (about 12 km to the north-east).
    The Wanfried Agreement in 1945 led to a shift in the American-Soviet zone border and with it the later Thuringian-Hessian state border. This is how the towns of Asbach-Sickenberg, Vatterode, Weidenbach and the associated mountain came to Thuringia. The mountain is therefore not part of the historic Eichsfeld. The inner-German border ran south of the mountain and can still be seen at the Schifflersgrund border museum near Asbach-Sickenberg.

  • This highlight is on the premium hiking trail 16 (P16).
    From here you have a wonderful view over the forests and mountains.
    It is certainly most beautiful in spring and summer, when the trees are blooming in beautiful green, as well as in golden autumn with colorful foliage.

  • The path is partially overgrown. But the goal is worth it. With a bench to sit on, you can really enjoy the view here

  • Great view which is of course even better in winter. When descending on some parts of the route, however, it is very slippery.
    In the morning everything is frozen rock hard and then the sun shines and it thaws on the surface. Then it's a slide.

  • From here you have a beautiful view.
    Two benches invite you to take a break. Very nice in autumn when the fog lies in the valley of the Werra and you can sit above it in the golden sunlight
