Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
With Thüringer gate the breakthrough of the Unstrut is called at Sachsenburg in Thuringia.
The river here breaks through the hills of Hainleite and Schmücke, which terminates the Thuringian Basin to the north.
The topographical conditions created by the Unstrut have always been used by traffic. The Bundesstraße 85, the Bundesstraße 86 and the Sangerhausen-Erfurt railway line pass through the Thüringer Pforte. The Thuringian Gate was guarded in the Middle Ages by the Upper Saxony Castle and Lower Saxony Castle (Wikipedia).
The Unstrut bike path leads right through here.
