    The 15-kilometer hike, always along the White Elster, has several interesting and photographic highlights. Shortly after you have crossed the river after arriving at Zeitz train station, the view of the fairytale Moritzburg Castle opens up to you.One reason for the construction and long existence of the former Moritzburg hunting lodge was probably nature in the 16th century. Due to the game, which was to be found in droves in the area in the 16th century, the headquarters of the Saxon hunting society was established there.Elector August the Strong expanded the already splendid hunting lodge into a larger pleasure palace to celebrate lavish parties. Today the castle is also popular with photographers because it is beautifully surrounded by water on a green island.After stopping at the castle, continue hiking and cross the White Elster over an idyllic bridge at Zangenberg. Then the path leads you through the green to the destination Profen, where you can still see the old fire brigade and the church. From Profen you can get to your home station the same way you got to Zeitz, because the two stations are connected by the same route.
