Meiningen is located between the beautiful Thuringian Forest and the rolling hills of the Rhön region. It offers an ideal setting for outdoor activities such as hiking, biking and canoeing on the river Werra. For maps and more detailed information please ask at the tourist information centre. Several short walks as well as long distance hiking trails run through the region. The three to four hour Meiningen Premium Circuit combined with a visit to the Goetz cave, Europe’s largest cleft and rift cave, makes a great day trip. A good option would also be to hire a canoe and paddle down the river through lush forest and open fields to Schwallungen or even further. After a long day exploring the countryside we suggest to try Thuringian dumplings in one of Meiningen’s excellent restaurants. And if you’re not tired yet, we can highly recommend a visit to a performance in the Meiningen Theatre.
