April 20, 2019
On its 13 kilometers route this hike led you through a variety of animal and plant life with a lot of great views. Let's start the circuit in Heldra. After wandering out of town, you cross the Werra and begin the ascent. 360 meters you leave at the first four kilometers behind you.You follow the former patrol paths on the German-German border for a while - nowadays a beautiful forest and meadow landscape. If you have mastered the climb, you will be rewarded with a fantastic view from the Hüneburg. Although there is not much to see from the former fortification, it is a great place to breathe. From the ruin it is not far to the mountain peak Heldrastein, the next vantage point. The tower of unity standing there is a symbol of German-German division and reunification.You wander on the plateau until you complete the trio of your vantage points after about one kilometer at the Three Men's Stone. From here you can see the tranquil town of Großburschla, your next destination. About forest and meadow paths you walk downhill. As soon as you leave the forest, the path leads you along the bank of the river Werra. In Großburschla you cross the river and walk back to your starting point on the other side of the river.There are no stops along the route, so pack enough water for the ascent. In Heldra, you can strengthen yourself at the community tavern (closed on Mondays).
