The Emperor Otto High Trail

.

If you want to learn more about the history of the region and enjoy impressive landscapes and views at the same time, we recommend this trail. The Kaiserweg enters the southern Harz in Ellrich and leads across the Green Belt, along the former inner-German border to the memorial site of the former subcamp of Mittelbau-Dora concentration camp, Juliushütte. Through the Karst landscape of the Southern Harz, via Nordhausen through the Goldene Aue to Badraer Schweiz, and over the Kyffhäuser Mountains to the Pfalz Tilleda. The Kaiserweg complements the network of paths of German emperors and kings of the Middle Ages in the Harz Mountains. Here, a section leads from Stiege to Nordhausen, passing, for example, the Ebersburg near the village of Herrmannsacker. The Verein für lebendiges Mittelalter e.V. (Association for Living Middle Ages) is strongly committed to the preservation of the Ebersburg and also offers guided tours on request. On various festive days throughout the year, such as Easter or Christmas, the association organises events for citizens, families and children.

The Kaiser-Otto-Höhenweg is a 14-kilometre long hiking trail on the south-eastern edge of the Harz Mountains. It was given its name at the official opening in 2012 on the occasion of the 1,100th birthday of the Roman-German Emperor Otto the Great, who was born in Wallhausen. The hiking trail is hikable all year round. The Kaiser-Otto-Höhenweg leads through the Karst Landscape South Harz Biosphere Reserve in the north of the Golden Aue. The starting point is the railway station in Sangerhausen. The trail then leads over the Butterkuppe, the Pfeiffersheim settlement and the Großer Buchberg. Hikers can enjoy magnificent views along this route between the Allstedt Forest, the Thuringian Gate, into the Goldene Aue, onto the Kyffhäuser Mountains, the Eichsfelder Gate to the Leine Valley and onto the southern Harz rim with the Karst Heights. The destination is Bennungen railway station. The Kaiser-Otto-Höhenweg can of course also be walked in the opposite direction.
