Saale-Unstrut Wine Route

The Saale-Unstrut Wine Route

The Saale-Unstrut Wine Route in Sachsen-Anhalt is not just the most northerly in Germany, but also the most northerly in Europe. It is located on the 51st degree of latitude which is the perfect temperature for cultivating quality wines.

The wine route follows the Saale and Unstrut rivers as they pass through the beautiful Sachsen-Anhalt countryside. Sturdy forts and majestic castles, such as Neuenburg or Rudelsburg, gaze down proudly on the charming river valleys below. The region is ideal for a weekend road trip, lying within easy distance of cities such as Erfurt, Leipzig, Magdeburg or Berlin.

Memleben is the best place to start from, squeezing through the narrow Steinklöbe gorge on the Unstrut and then passing towns like Nebra, Freyburg, Naumburg und Bad Kösen until you reach Bad Sulza.

It goes without saying, but the wine routes detailed on this page are for the benefit of hire car passengers ... designated drivers must confine themselves to drinking in the scenery.
