Welcome to Saale-Unstrut Region
The wine-growing region along the rivers Saale and Unstrut provides a wonderfully rural summer retreat. Europe’s most northerly wine district produces crisp whites and fairly sharp reds, which you can enjoy at wine tastings, sometimes right at the estates. The 60km bicycle-friendly Weinstrasse (Wine Road) meanders through the region, past steeply terraced vineyards, castle-topped hills and small family-owned farms. Local tourist offices can help with information and maps.
