Obtain hiking maps and special maps

Service Description

You need a hiking map for one or more regions of the Free State of Thuringia? The Thuringian State Office for Land Management and Geoinformation (TLBG) publishes hiking maps for almost the entire Free State.

Hiking maps (at a scale of 1:25,000 or 1:50,000) are special maps derived from the official topographic maps of Thuringia, but in a different special sheet format, with kleine overlapping areas to allow an easier transition to the respective neighboring sheet. They contain cycling and hiking routes as well as tourist information. To emphasize elevation changes, the hiking maps contain terrain numbering in addition to contour lines. The reverse sides of the maps are provided with a lot of information useful for tourists, e.g. with descriptions of hiking routes, with references to sights or interesting objects in the landscape. The use of GPS navigation devices is supported by the display of UTM coordinates.

Topographic general maps at smaller scales (e.g. 1:250,000) form the basis of a large number of special maps (thematic general maps) produced and made available by the TLBG.

The types of maps described are available in analog (multicolor print - output folded or plano) and partly digital format.
