The entire Region in one big loop
The "Tour am Minett" is the ideal opportunity for petrolheads to discover a unique region. 90km of drivers roads are awaiting your visit.
As you drive accross it, the Minett region will show off its beauty: vast nature reserves in the former mining areas, big renaturation projects and well preserved historical industrial sites are waiting to be discovered. Take a quick pit stop, hike into one of the lush nature reserves on foot and immerse yourself - and be astounded by how calm, quiet and relaxed it can be, just a short walk away from the hustle and bustle of the modern world.
See how the region continues to reinvent themselves, either by turning existing infrastructure into something new or builds on strong foundations. As you drive accross some of the larger towns and cities, you'll see unmistakeable signs of the industrial heritage of this region; a heritage that has influenced landscape, society, culture, architecture and more.
Additionally, due to their shorter length, this regional loop is well-suited for a brief weekend trip as their more manageable tour distance make visiting touristic highlights along the way while still finishing the entirety of the loop in one day much more likely.
Of course, you shouldn't feel the need to finish the "Tour am Minett" with any degree of haste anyway - so take your time, relax and discover a diverse, contrastful region with a rich history and culture and find out why the UNESCO label "Man and the Biosphere" is well-deserved.
