To the south of the city a green jewel is waiting to be discovered: Weitmar woods.

Extending over an area of some 80 hectares, it is a restful antidote to life in the city. Take a stroll among age-old oak and beech trees, passing enclosures of fallow deer and wild boar. In a clearing you’ll see a piece of rock from the ice-age which commemorates a young goat-herd called Jörgen – according to legend it was he who first discovered coal here.

Due to storm Ela in 2014 we recommend to stay on public ways for your own safety.
