Obtain hiking maps and special maps

Service Description

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

Hiking maps (at a scale of 1:25,000 or 1:50,000) are special maps that are derived from the official topographical maps of Thuringia, but in a different special sheet section, with ksmall overlapping areas to facilitate the transition to the respective neighboring sheet. They contain cycling and hiking trails as well as tourist information. To emphasize the differences in altitude, the hiking maps contain a terrain numbering in addition to the contour lines. The reverse sides of the maps contain lots of useful information for tourists, e.g. descriptions of hiking routes, information on places of interest or interesting objects in the landscape. The use of GPS navigation devices is supported by the display of UTM coordinates.

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

The map types described are available in analog (multi-color print - folded or plano edition) and partly digital format.
