German Half-Timbered House Road
Steinau is member of the German Half-Timbered House Road
The German Half-Timbered House Road, founded in 1990, runs from the river Elbe to the Black Forest through six federal states (Lower Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Hesse, Thuringia, Bavaria and Baden Wuerttemberg) and is divided into nine regional routes.
In the meantime nearly 100 towns have joined up under the slogan "Half-Timbered unites" in order to coordinate their marketing. The German Half-Timbered House Road does not only join unique landscapes, historic sites and carefully restored monuments but above all the people who live and work there. Health resorts and festival locations alternate with nature parks and romantic nooks. Cider and Bock beer were invented here and hardly any other tourist route can offer its guests such a variety of culinary delights.
Germany's northern most vineyard, the biggest Christmas candle in the world and Germany's only Ivory Museum are all located on the German Framework Road. Many events, festivals and markets offer the visitor variety and entertainment throughout the whole year.
Whether you travel by car, by bicycle, by train or in a motorhome - discover the old craft and living traditional customs on this historical trail.
We would like to invite you to a tour full of culture and adventure along the German Half-Timbered House Road.
