Right at the beginning the hike awaits you with a natural and cultural highlight, the solar observatory.

Further on, with a view of the wide valley of the Saale floodplain to Naumburg and Goseck Castle and beautiful vineyards - including one of the oldest vineyards in Saale-Unstrut - the Dechanten vineyard. The small village of Eulau, with the Eulau knight's estate, which seems to be "sleepy", must not remain unmentioned. Who would have suspected it...and a beautiful old village church.

Directions: In the Heiligtalgrund there is a turn-off at the "old waterworks" and thus another variant to reach the "oak forest" on a wonderful forest path and further on through an old cherry plantation with a view of Eulau. The unmarked variant is included in the hiking trail map of the "green heart". The hike invites you to many detours/crossings, with little surprises along the way, e.g. old boundary stone, with the remark that the ascent is punished with payment of 3 marks - well, if that doesn't invite you to commit a transgression. The branch leads to the Silbertalgrund and here the Märzenbecher are in full bloom in spring. A highlight is of course Goseck Castle, absolutely worth seeing as well as the information centre about the solar observatory. There are variants with connections to other hiking trails, e.g. the circular trail around Goseck. An important hint for orientation before you start the hiking dung: in the centre of Goseck there is an information board with a picture of the hiking trails around Goseck.

Approach: Due to construction work at present (status March 2020) following approach via A9 - junction Naumburg B180 towards Freyburg, roundabout in Nißmitz continue towards 180, then junction to Henne, junction to Pödelist, towards Markröhlitz, in the centre of Markröhlitz to Goseck.

Parking: At the entrance of Goseck on the left side use the parking lot of the solar observatory. The parking lot at the castle has only a limited number of parking spaces.
