|Yes, this is the direction to the Philosophenweg|
|Exercise to walk up the hill|
We started by walking up a steep street lined by some very impressive houses, or mansions. This trip will do you good in more ways than one. Taking the Philosophers' Walk you will get your heart going through some really good exercise.
As you pass through the city streets you will be relieved by the fact that it is flat, after the steep ascent. Then you will past abundant greenery on a terraced walk way where you can gaze down on the ancient city.
