The geopath crosses a varied landscape that is interesting in terms of mining history.

The Geopfad Wettin is a thematically oriented hiking and educational offer for visitors in the nature park "Unteres Saaletal".
The 9 km long nature trail is a circular route through the area northwest of Wettin. The varied geological conditions and mining legacies of the historically interesting area are explained on ten panels. With its focus on geology and mining history, the Wettin Geological Trail complements the previous nature and cultural landscape trails in the nature park area. The facts presented on the display boards convey a comprehensive picture of the geological conditions.
The former Wettin coal mining area is considered to be the site of a classic Carboniferous flora and fauna. Visitors are offered impressive views of the nature park area stretching along the lower Saale. For the trail, which mostly leads over paved and unpaved field paths, you will need about 3 hours.

Pathway:
Restaurant Jagdhütte in Wettin - Schweizerling - shelter at the exploration shaft - mouth of the Dobis gallery - Ilau pond - Pögritzmühle Saale cycle path
