Wandern um Gotha

Activity tourism in the region


Whether you prefer hiking on your own or with a guide in group, tend to favour short distances or tours over several days, like relaxing on easy routes or things being a bit sportier with a more challenging level of difficulty – there are many paths open to you here.

In the exceptionally extensive hiking trail network virtually everyone should find a route tailored to their individual potential and in tune with their personal preferences. For example, you can hike in Luther’s footsteps and follow the pilgrims towards Eisenach or pamper your body with Kneipp treatments and fresh spring water with healthy hiking in the surrounding spa centres. Various circular hiking trails lead, among others, to the Falkenstein, Ebertswiese or “Tanzbuche” where you can partly enjoy virtually untouched nature.


Climb to the Inselsberg’s peak, roam through the Sembachtal valley or hike up the world-famous “Rennsteig”. There’s certainly no lack of options. And if nature alone is not enough for you, then several hosts offer you attractive package deals – whether it’s a fulfilling wellness and relaxation programme or an organised hike over several days with luggage transfer and various amenities. In this spirit, pack your backpack and hike with us! Please enquire at the Thüringer Wald/ Gothaer Land e. V. tourist association for specific route descriptions and offers.
