Oude binnenstad, Saale en Peißnitz (7,4 km)
Starting at the hotel we turn left into Marienstraße, changing its name into Charlottenstraße later. We turn right into Augustastraße. We cross Martinsstraße and go on running into Augustastraße turning into a small lane. At the end we turn right and run along Leipziger Straße enjoying the old district of Halle (Saale). After ca. 750 meters we reach the market place which we cross diagonally to the right.
We pass Church of Str. Mary to the left and run along the tramlines down Talamtstraße. There we turn right onto Hallorenring. We follow the street bending to the left and cross the river and turn right into Robert-Franz-Ring. After 500 meters we turn left into the park Würfelwiese and run straight over a little bridge and through a wood. At the end we reach the park Peißnitz and turn left.
Here we follow the main route, cross a big bridge and turn left. Passing some sport facilities and amongst nature we enjoy the run and follow the signs “Saaleradwanderweg”. They lead us back to Mansfelder Straße after 1.2 km which is changing its name to Hallorenring after some time. From that point we run back the same way back to the hotel across the old district of Halle (Saale), which we reach after some more than 7 kilometers.
Please notice: This is the “basic round”. If you want more you can extend the distance in several ways using the endless park ways which wait to be discovered. The good signposting will help you constantly find your way back to the starting point of the route.
