Above you can expect a great panorama and a visit to the interesting castle museum. The tour starts in the historic center of Heldburg and from there it goes towards Bad Colberg. You walk past the small Kuhsee, on the banks of which benches and picnic areas invite you to take a break.You come to the Green House, an old hunting lodge of Duke Georg II of Saxony-Meiningen. From there you march along forest paths to the absolute highlight of this tour, the Veste Heldburg. The complex is considered to be one of the most beautiful castles in Germany and from the tower you can look out over the Thuringian Forest, the Hassberge and the imposing “Sister Veste” Coburg. After visiting the castle complex, the route takes you back to Heldberg with its colorful half-timbered houses.
