Art hiking path ARS NATURA around the Heiligenberg Castle
A distinction of the region is the art hiking path ARS NATURA. You can marvel at 300 works of art on more than 240 km of hiking paths. On a 2-km long thematic walk around the Heiligenberg about 5 km to the west of Melsungen, you can discover many art works, such as:
“The white woman.”: there are many fanciful legends and stories about the White Woman of Heiligenberg. Coal was mined on the Heiligenberg in bygone times. Drifts of smoke arose from the smouldering fires in the seams, which appeared to be a sign of the White Woman.
The art works in the " Nature Gallery Room " entice visitors to enter into a special dialogue with nature. An ascent up to Heiligenberg Castle forms the conclusion of the hike, from where you can enjoy a fantastic view of the low mountain landscape of Northern Hesse.
Beginning of the circular path: Heiligenberg, 34587 Felsberg-Gensungen
