Tips and hintsPilgerweg "VIA ROMEA"
We start at the market church in Bad Langensalza. Follow the "Marktstraße" and then turn left into "Rathausstraße". This one becomes the "Lange Straße". After a few metres, we turn left into the street "Beim Barfüßer" and continue on the "Steinweg" and "Bahnhofstraße". In front of the station of Bad Langensalza, we turn left, via the "Steubnerstraße", to the "Gothaer Landstraße". We cross this one half left and then turn into "Hannoversche Straße". In a left curve, we turn right.
We cross two railway lines and then go left, along the railway line. After the crossing of the federal road, we turn right (crossing the rails) and then turn left again, along the railway line. At the next crossroads, turn left until the “Landstraße” and turn right into the village of “Illeben”. We cross the village by keeping to the right. We cross the railway line again and then go left along the rails and then enter the village of Eckardtsleben (once again, a railway pass). Go to the centre of the village and then keep right on the street "Zum Bahnhof", direction south. At the road "Am Auweg", we turn left and then turn right again in the direction of “Aschara”.
We go into Aschara and go through the whole village on the "Hauptstraße". At the exit of the village, turn left into the field path "Ascharerer Weg". To the right, immediately to the left, the field path follows a federal road after a right bend. We follow this one to the left for a little while and turn to the left into a farm road at the next occasion. At the next turning, turn right to Westhausen.
In Westhausen, turn left at the "Hochheimer Straße" and then turn right again into "Kirchstraße". Then take the "Hauptstraße" to the right and then turn left into "Feuergasse". We go to the village of Warza. We cross the village along the main road. Shortly before the exit, turn right into "Remstädter Weg". After a left bend, continue straight ahead to Remstädt.
In Remstädt, we go on the "Warzaer Straße" to the "Oststraße". Turn right here and turn left again into "Hauptstraße". The road becomes "Am Furtfeld". At the exit, turn right after a pond and then turn left again into the "Heutalsweg". Via the "Rennstädter Weg", we reach the centre of Gotha. We cross the "Gartenstraße" and come across the "Lutherweg" and "Marktstraße" to the "Hauptmarkt", our destination.
