Saale-Unstrut

Land of castles and wines

Here you'll find the most northern wine-growing region of Europe. This is a region which is known for enjoyment, relaxation, significant cultural monuments, and ongoing cultural events. Along the 60 km. of the Saale-Unstrut wine road, you can travel by bicycle, boat, foot, or car on a journey that will take you near to history, nature, and culinary discoveries.

Gentle meadows, slopes overgrown with orchids, craggy limestone crops, and lush green vineyards with picturesque wine huts are all characteristic of this region.

Over the past decades the region has also become known for its sensational archaeological finds – most notably the “Nebra Sky Disk” – and the oldest solar observatory in the world, in Goseck.
