From Laucha to the Dragon's Corner, the tour can be extended to the Orchid Path.

The town church of St. Marien and the town hall, which is under monumental protection, with its striking covered staircase, characterise the town centre of Laucha - the starting point of the hike. Along the old town wall, the path leads past the well-preserved upper gate, the double gate system consists of an outer gate and a gatehouse. In the warm season numerous events take place here.
On the southwest side of the Unstrut valley, the slopes lie between Plößnitz and Krawinkel. It is the "shady side" of the valley, which means that the slopes are still mostly guarded. The Borntal has cut deeply here. The varied path leads to Plößnitz, where the old village church was built from the foam lime of the former quarries in the area. And some of these old quarries are still visible.

The hike in the valley, in the shady forest with its species-rich flora - is without equal.

You should - if you have enough time - extend the trail with a detour to Krawinkel, because a special highlight awaits you in Krawinkel - the Orchid Circuit.
