We found the way over the Kunitz Bridge to the castle ruins very nice. It went through a lovely village center, past vineyards in the direction of the forest. From then on, the path meandered in serpentines, lined with hedges and trees, towards the ruin. In between there were benches to linger with with fabulous views of the Saale valley.
