Where Schiller got married and the German national flag had its origins

Enjoy a walk around the former suburbs of Jena across the Saale river

Camsdorfer Brücke Jena, Schiller

Enjoy a walk around the former suburbs of Jena across the Saale river and find out where the writer Friedrich Schiller got married and the German national flag had its origins.

Starting at Camsdorf Bridge, originally one of the seven wonders of Jena, the route takes you past the historical Grüne Tanne inn, where Johann Wolfgang von Goethe once stayed, and where the Jena student fraternity was founded. The fraternity popularised black, red and gold as a symbol of national unity, and these are still the colours of the German flag today. The walk continues along the Saale river to the church where the writer Friedrich Schiller was married. Along the way you will learn interesting facts about Jena’s first kindergarten, the tradition of swimming in the Saale, and the last blacksmith in Jena. The tour also includes stunning views of Jenzig hill, another one of the seven wonders.
