Description:

A circular trail with imperial and fantastic views of the Saale valley and the cathedral city of Naumburg.

At the beginning of the hike there is the solar observatory "shrouded in mystery". Give in to your curiosity and take a look at the replica of a Neolithic circular ditch. In this way, you will be put in the mood for a path that may seem very mystical right at the beginning. We recommend a guided tour, which can be booked in the information centre of Goseck Castle.

You hike through a light deciduous forest and reach another highlight of the hike, the Kaiserblick viewpoint. And this view over the valley with the meandering glittering Saale river, the lush meadows, the tranquil villages and Naumburg Castle in the background is definitely imperial!
With a little luck you might see Master Adebar strutting on the Saalewiesen.

A lilac-lined path leads to a bear's den, which can be viewed and a wonderfully enchanted place invites you to take a rest.

In Goseck Castle with its picturesque courtyard and the ginkgo tree, you should not miss a stop at the Schloss Schenke. The Goseck Castle Association runs a European music and cultural centre on site with concert series in the castle and the castle tavern. Because you are sure to start dreaming and perhaps (with a lot of imagination) you can even guess the voices of our ancestors in the castle courtyard - it takes a little discipline to continue on your way. The path to the Igelsberg (which is part of the circular route) opens up another wonderful view of the Saale valley after a short hike through the forest, with views of the castle.
