    For all ages an experience, but please note the weather. Should it be slippery better not go through. For the summer a tip, since it is very pleasant.

    Great during the week! Hikers with dogs should know that some bars are made of metal mesh and are difficult or impossible for smaller dogs to handle. We always have a sheet for the case. Kngeknotet makes it a great carrier similar to a hammock. Ours has 14 kg ... goes on the short distance 😁

    At the current hot temperatures definitely recommended. Nevertheless, it can be damp and slippery in some places.
    And then there is a very tight spot. With oncoming traffic it can come to funny to annoying situations (even experienced).

    Beware of ground frost. On the wood planks it is very slippery!

    Wild-romantic, with a touch of adventure, so it goes through the gorge.

    It is one of the most beautiful gorges in Thuringia and easy to reach

    The Dragon Gorge holds many surprises!
    In the summer heat, it offers a cool and refreshing place, lined on the left and right by towering, plant-rich rocks.
    At the narrowest part of the gorge, the evening chip and chocolate adventures on the couch are clearly visible. :-)
    Children love hiking over the stream below.
    Occasionally the Drachenschlucht serves photographers and film crews as an incomparable background.

    My tip: with the bus (different lines go this route) from the central bus station Eisenach (right next to the Eisenach main station) in the direction of HOHE SONNE and from there downhill enjoy the adventure Drachenschlucht. From the exit of the gorge you can reach a quiet hiking trail along the small creek back into the city at the foot of the Wartburg.

    Have fun :-)

    The Drachenschlucht is a gorge near Eisenach in the Thuringian Forest in the nature reserve "Forests with gorges between Wartburg and Hohe Sonne".

    A very nice area with beautiful paintings
    The gorge itself is absolute top but unfortunately very short, I thought you run a long way through the gorge, but unfortunately was not so.

    In the shade of high rocks various mosses thrive. These cover the rocks like velvet.

    The whole dragon canyon is quite narrow in several places but here it seems
    to be the narrowest.
    The Dragon Canyon is always worth a visit

    Just nice to run through here. It has to be expected with crowds.

    Not with snow and ice, or necessarily turn around in time. The further up the more icy the route gets.
    Otherwise in the winter spectacular impressions.

    The path through the Drachenschlucht is one of the wonderful hiking trails around Eisenach and has a special charm in every season.

    I recommend going up the Dragon's Canyon and going down the Landgrave canyon. The Dragon Gorge is not that steep.
