The “Romantic Road” and the “Skywalk” run along the Saale-Unstrut Wine Route. Castles and palaces such as the Neuenburg and the Rudelsburg, important buildings like Naumburg Cathedral and mystical sites such as the place where the Sky Disk of Nebra was found tell of the cultural history of the country. Freyburg on the Unstrut is con- sidered the secret wine capital of the area. Every year on the second weekend in September, the largest wine festival of the region is held here. Exploring this wine-growing region and its wines, vineyards, wine taverns and seasonal vintners wine bars is a lot of fun as there is a well-developed network of cycle paths, walking tracks and waterways. The largest part of the region is located in the Saale-Unstrut-Triasland conservation area.
