Naumburg – Goseck / Uechteritz
The tour starts at our station in Naumburg-Henne. Here the Saale spreads into a wide riverbed as it continues its journey peacefully through the Saale River Valley.
As you make your way through the Saale River and surrounding forests, you may catch a glimpse of several native animals; the turquoise river kingfisher, various types of heron, cormorants and/or nutrias all in their natural habitat. If you are lucky, you may even see turtles and European Otters!
From Naumburg to Goseck the Saale runs by the Schönburg Fort, which is located 40m above the river on a sandstone rock. Approximately 5 kilometres down stream from the Schönburg Fort, the Castle Goseck is strategically situated on the left riverbank. The Castle functions today as a restaurant as well as a music and cultural centre.
It is important to note that in the last stretch of the river, motorboats are permitted and could cross your path.
This tour ends at the Wasserwanderplatz in Uichteritz.
