Hike: The Royal Road – Via Regia

The Via Regia is an ancient trade route that stretched across Central Europe, connecting Krakow and Paris, with major stops in Frankfurt and Leipzig and several divergent paths. Part of the road has been preserved near the town of Fulda as a result of its use as a military highway in the 18th and 19th centuries and its abandonment in the 20th. This hike walks along its old route, and occasionally you may still see some original pavement.

How to Get Here:

  • The hike starts at the Johannesberg Monastery south of Fulda, reachable by Bus, and ends at the town of Neuhof with a train connection to Fulda or Frankfurt
