The 133-kilometre Werra-Burgen-Steig Hessen, marked as X5 H, begins in the Lower Saxony town of Hann. Münden. After one day of walking, Berlepsch Castle welcomes walkers to Hessen and presents a series of beautifully situated, time-honoured ruins. Walking past the impressive shell limestone rocks along the predominantly natural paths is extremely enjoyable. The densely forested mountainous landscape, predominantly featuring light-flooded beech forests, provides unique views and insights. The views continuously draw your gaze towards the airy heights of the Werra Valley, across lush meadows and traditional villages. The Werra-Burgen-Steig Hessen brings nature and culture together in thrilling fashion. On your journey to your destination of Tannenburg bei Nentershausen, you'll find plenty of country guesthouses and hotels in historical timber-framed towns inviting you to stop and enjoy some refreshments or a romantic stay.
