The Werra-Burgen-Steig Hessen (X5H) connects Hann. Münden with Tannenburg Castle over 133 km.

The quality-certified hiking trail "Werra-Burgen-Steig Hessen" X5 H with its unique castle character leads through a surprisingly diverse landscape. Pretty half-timbered towns such as Hann. Münden, Witzenhausen, Bad Sooden-Allendorf and Eschwege await hungry hikers and offer plenty of opportunities to take a breather.

A moderate to steep ascent awaits on each stage, but it is always rewarded with an unbeatable view. One of the most beautiful stages is definitely the "Hörne" area near Rothestein Castle in Bad Sooden-Allendorf.

After almost 130 kilometres, the final destination is Tannenburg Castle. Up to here, including all the ascents, you have climbed an outstanding 3,700 metres in altitude.
