The Werra-Burgen-Steig with the sign X5 is a 500 km long long-distance hiking trail.
It begins in Hann. Münden in southern Lower Saxony and runs along the Werra River through northeast Hesse and western Thuringia to Masserberg.
The 128-kilometer section from Hann. Münden to Nentershausen with the special “X5 H” sign is certified as a quality hiking trail.
As early as 1885, the hiking fans of the Werra Valley Association laid the oldest section from the Wartburg in Eisenach to Hann. Münden.
Divided by the inner-German border, further routes were laid and united after the fall of the Wall.
The Werra-Burgen-Steig was extended to the sources of the Werra in 2011.(Source: Wikipedia)
