The route: From Thale to Treseburg and to the Hexentanzplatz

The hike begins in Thale, a charming place at the entrance to the Bodetal. From here the path winds along the river, past rugged rocks and through dense forests. The first third of the route is particularly impressive as it takes hikers along narrow gravel and stone paths that constantly offer breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape.

The middle of the route: Treseburg

The Bodetal shows its wildly romantic side, especially in the first third of the route. The narrow and rocky paths, the constant views of rugged rocks and the sharply cut river make this section a highlight of the tour.

The second part: Off to the witches' dance place

The second part of the hike is characterized by wider forest paths that wind through the valley. While the first section of the hike boasts its proximity to the water and impressive rock formations, the second section offers a different kind of beauty. Here hikers can enjoy the peace and quiet of the forest and prepare for the crowning conclusion of the tour: the Hexentanzplatz.

Conclusion of the hike

The Bodetal offers an impressive mix of natural beauty and challenging hiking trails. The first section along the river is particularly picturesque, while the second section has wide forest paths. A highlight of the tour is without a doubt the Hexentanzplatz, a place that impresses not only with its view but also with its mystical atmosphere.
