Tips

  • Sanna

    Beautiful castle ruins with a wonderful view. There are various hiking trails to the Kunitzburg. It is recommended to just walk along the horseshoe, then you come to the beautiful Jenzig.

    Gleißberg Castle, today mostly called Kunitzburg after the Kunitz district of Jena below, is the ruin of a hilltop castle at 300 m above sea level. NN five kilometers northeast of the city at the northern end of the so-called "horseshoe". This is formed by the Jenzig and the steep Großer Gleisberg, which protrudes west into the Saale valley. The ruin belongs to the Golmsdorf field. Wikipedia

    Yes, most people will know the ruins of the 100 km horizontal around Jena. But you can also make a detour there.

    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.

    If you want to hike here longer, you have to mention the Saale-Horizontale.

    The Kunitzburg is just amazing. There is not much left BUT what is there is extremely charming and the view is priceless.
    Whether you let your gaze wander through the walls or further down on the small plateau. Splendid.
    You can get up very easily from the hiking car park or via the ascent from Laasan.
