Werra Road bike tour

Welcome  to our Radltour!

 15. - 22. July 2019 


Heide & ...
Iris - the tired bicyclist

We did the core tour.
Based at Bad Salzungen we made classic tour to Merkers (Schaubergwerk), Vacha, the former border city with a wonderful old town and the historical Werra bridge.
Bicycle trails in all directions. Good marked.
We have been at Bad Liebenstein, Meiningen, Lutherort Möhra, Tiefenort. Eisenach (Wartburg).
Every day, we enjoyed the swim in the Gradierwerk Sole bath.
Our hotel: Solewerk Hotel. Very modern. The former name: "Freundschaft"- somehow typical for the times, when "real socialism" existed.
Everyone who is interested to repeat this tour, should remember, the Rhoen Mountain range sucks some power off.
Rolling mountains with heights up to 450 meters.
One thing which seems important to mention: The road to Eisenach is a very busy road. Beside the steep climb it is not wise to ride this road. We have exceptionally not found a bike trail...

Good luck to our followers.

Enjoy the pictures!
