Celtic Discovery Trail

Southern Thuringia, Hassberge Mountains, and Steigerwald Forest

The lengthy Celtic Discovery Trail retraces the Celtic history of Franconia and Southern Thuringia. From the Werra River, across the Gleichberge and the Hassberge Mountains, through the Main River Valley, the Steigerwald Forest, all the way to the Aischgrund region. That is 254 km of hiking adventure, rediscovering prehistoric times. Look for clues of a period of European history that is currently being rediscovered and take the opportunity to discover all of Franconia’s natural and cultural treasures along the way.
