    One of the two Werra sources, which should be a cyclist for every Werra Valley bike path. Great area, which invites you to linger.

    This Werra spring, also known as the Schröder spring version, was inaugurated on August 14, 1898 with a forest festival. Forest master Georg Schröder from Heubach was the namesake. Master bricklayer Elias Traut from Fehrenbach put the spring in local natural stone, since then the water has flowed from the jaws of a lion's head. Two plaques on the frame commemorate Forstmeister Schröder and Maurer Traut (Wikipedia).

    Not a must, but who wants to drive the Werratal cycle path completely, should have stopped by both Werraquellen. By the way: the "upper" Werra spring is located three meters below the "lower" Werra spring.

    Here in the Thuringian Forest near the Rennsteig rises the Werra and is after approx. 300 km together with the Fulda to the Weser, which then flows into the North Sea.

    This is where the Werra rises and this is where the Werra Valley Cycle Path begins, which runs from here through Thuringia and Hesse to Hann. Münden in Lower Saxony. A very nice route, always on great bike paths or side streets, often car-free and always in the valley of the Werra, often with a view of the river. This cycle path is recommended to every cyclist, if you ride relaxed it takes 4 to 5 days. Before the trip you should definitely drink a sip of Werra spring water or fill up the bottle with it. When I was here in summer 2018, there was little water, it was only enough for one sip. There is also a second Werra spring (the lower one) a few kilometers southeast, I was there too, but it was not as beautiful and worth seeing as this spring here. Anyone who completely rides the Werra cycle path should also have seen the source.
