River Saale Cycle Route

River ‘Saale’ – Cycle Route

Get away from your daily routine and experience nature! The best way to do so is along the River ‘Saale’ – Cycle Route.  The cycling path runs to the south of Merseburg through forests, canyons and shimmering blue lakes. It then leads thro ugh the Saale-Unstrut wine-growing region and the city of Merseburg. After a pause, perhaps to enjoy a glass of wine at the Best Western Hotel Halle-Merseburg, continue your tour through green fields and woodlands, passing the castles and fortresses of Wettin or Bernburg to the north of Merseburg. A parallel running train enables you to start and stop your tour wherever you like.

The Best Western Hotel Halle-Merseburg is certified by the ADFC, the German cycling club, as a bed & bike hotel. You also can rent bikes. We offer all our guests free bike parking spaces in our garage as well as having repair tools available.
