Hike to the site where the mysterious 3600-year-old bronze disc was found and to Nebra Ark.

Below the Ark Nebra Visitor Centre, the hike begins counterclockwise. A field and forest line the path.
Very soon it goes steeply upwards through a deciduous forest and then peels
a striking lookout tower from the "green" of the forest. 30 m high and inclined by 10°, it functions as the hand of an oversized sundial.
A vertical section divides the structure and marks the line of sight to the lump: Here the sun set at summer solstice, here the sky disk could be placed and used as a solar calendar.
The view of the tower is magnificent. To Kyffhäuser and, if the weather is good, to Brocken. The area on the Mittelberg was carefully designed. You can look into the Third Eye and discover more find spots.

Through a deciduous forest we go back in the direction of Nebra Ark. A hut with a view to the observation tower invites you to take a break.
Oaks flank the path like guards. A branch of the path leads to Memleben, the historical town with the Museum Kloster und Kaiserpfalz Memleben. And down in the valley, the Unstrut meanders glitteringly.

Then the "golden sun barque" lies before you. The planetarium show in the Nebra Ark shows you the starry sky of the Bronze Age.
