A hike with beginning and end in the small town of Laucha and through the dragon's corner.

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. The hiking trail leads straight to the Bell Museum Laucha. More than 5,000 bells were cast there, today you can see historical working techniques of the bell foundry.

Through fields and a forest path you will be guided around the Ennsberg.
The path offers views of Laucha, the opposite Nüssenberg and the wide Unstrut valley. High above the vineyards of Laucha the gliders hover.

According to an old legend, a dragon is said to have caused mischief at the Drachenwinkel. Here it is pretty scary and indeed, at the end of the 19th century huge skeletal remains were found in the gorge.
