Recommended Bicycle Routes

Rape fields and cherry trees line the cycling routes in the charming valley of the river Werra. The landscape varies from thick forests to open fields. Canoeists and anglers wave at you from the river; in the villages you can take pictures of the lovely half-timbered houses and discover many hidden corners. Castles, ruins and the nature park “Hoher Meißner” let you immerse yourself in the regional legends and the fairytale world of the Brothers Grimm.

Especially popular is our cycling route BS8, starting at the thermal bath „WerratalTherme“. This route leads you through Bad Sooden-Allendorf and the surrounding area for either 25 km or 12 km without any climbs.

Another easy ride is cycling route 6: 47 km to the neighboring city of Eschwege and back.
If you prefer going for a long challenging ride, then route 5 including many steep climbs, may be just right for you. This route with a total distance of 45 km takes you to Orferode, Kammerbach, Hilgershausen and finally to Witzenhausen. From Witzenhausen, you cycle back to Bad Sooden-Allendorf along the river.

The Werratal Route

The Werratal Route

The 300 km-long Werratal bicycle route starts at the river’s two sources at the Rennsteig in Thuringia, a ridge walk and historical boundary path. The route follows the river to Hann. Münden where the confluence of the Werra river and the Fulda river form the Weser river. 10 km of the popular route are in the municipal area of Bad Sooden-Allendorf where you pass the adorable half-timbered houses, cozy little cafés as well as numerous beer gardens.

Once you have discovered this part of the route, it is very likely that you come back for the entire route. Then you can enjoy the northern part of the Rhön mountains – “the land of the white mountains”. A considerable variety of plants and animals can be admired in the former border area between the Federal Republic of Germany and the German Democratic Republic. Many pieces of art, castles, ruins or the border museum “Schifflersgrund” provide the perfect reason for a stop. We recommend dividing the route into five stages of 60 km.

The map of rides published by PublicPress is available in any bookshop as well as in the tourist information centers in the Werratal:
