Bike Touring Highlight
The Saalewehr in Bad Kösen (Naumburg) is known to be particularly dangerous. On 10 June 1984, four people died in a tragic boat accident. A dinghy had capsized with seven people on board at the Saalewehr. Firefighters, police and soldiers of the Soviet Army were able to pull out of the water alive only three of the inmates during the rescue operation. The bodies of the four people were recovered only days later. The rescue operation injured two firefighters, one of them seriously injured. (Jop)
